I don't usually think of car companies for food reviews but General Motors is getting into the content creation craze and has put together this list of West Los Angeles ramen restaurants that has me wanting some warm noodles on this relatively cool fall day. I'm at work so I don't have a Pho-to (get it? Pho!) of any noodles to add but if anyone is in the area, please snap and pic from your favorite Rancho Park, Westwood, or Sawtelle area place and post it here. Hopefully, we'll soon have an album of oodles of neighborhood noodles.
Though the Expo Line lawsuits seem to have come to an end, bicycle advocates are concerned about bike trails in Cheviot Hills, reports LAStreetsblog.org publisher Damien Newton.
Thought LADOT and federal authorities and "Northvale 7" reached a settlement last year, cyclists are worried about access to the path.
The Westside Neighborhood Council and Council District 5, currently represented by Paul Koretz, will be provided with a presentation and a chance to weigh in on whether or not there should be an entrance to the bike path at Northvale and Dunleer Drive and whether or not the access should be 24 hours.
"The Westside Neighborhood Council isn’t exactly known for it’s support for transportation options," Damien stated. He noted that one member appeared on radio railing against Westwood bike lanes and highlighted Rancho Park Online member …Continue

The California Supreme Court says Expo Line Phase Two construction can proceed without any further study. The court affirmed the appeals court's Expo Line decision and denied Neighbors for Smart Rail's petition to have the line's environmental impacts restudied.
You can read the ruling here.
The majority of the court actually agreed with NFSR's first claim that the EIR failed to disclose the effects the project will have on existing environmental conditions. However, the court deemed this non-prejudicial to the case.
In a statement on their website, Neighbors for Smart Rail says their attorneys are are reviewing this unique opinion to understand what it means and does not mean.
Streetsblog LA covered the breaking news, with some history on this case, and quoted Expo Construction Authority CEO Rick Thorpe.
“We are gratified that the California Supreme Court has affirmed the lower court rulings," he said.…Continue

Palms Park, nestled between the Palms Rec Center and Library on Overland and the under-construction tracks of the Expo Line, has been closed for months and months and months, walled off behind forbidding fences. Last week, it opened again in a discreet ceremony over Memorial Day with zero advance publicity, nothing even on the Parks & Recs website.
It's a sweet, unique little spot, accessible over a welcoming footbridge from Northvale Ave over the Expo tracks in the ravine below as well as the parking lot off Overland just above the 10. Despite the mighty transit arteries surrounding it, still a surprisingly quiet spot for child runarounds, and barbecues in the pits. Doggies need to stay on leash, as someone there will remind you if they don't. Watch for the arrogant feral cats lounging under and around the footbridge as you come in, and for the ladies feeding them around 5.…Continue
