"All symptoms of the engineered downgrade of the standard of living. Remember the images of the poor Chinese riding bikes in massive herds that we used to see back in the 80's. That's going to be us. Welcome to the future. If you can…"

"Samantha, I just wanted to pass on a couple of links in case you hadn't considered this. Current trends indicate that, more than likely, your kids will one day be biking or walking at least part of their commute. I don't have a point to…"

barney desimone commented on Overland Avenue's blog post Westside Neighborhood Council -- Bike Lanes On Westwood?!?
"That would be about right. Car travel by the common man is to be discouraged. It's not a family friendly concept, but then population reduction is the ultimate aim. Less people means less carbon output and environmental damage. These people are…"

"I like to ride a bike too. It's just not pracitcal transportation for most people. For the larger agenda Google Agenda 21 ( the Agenda for the 21st Century ) and ICLEI. There are some interesting You Tube clips if you don't have time to…"

"Common sense Samantha. I agree with everything you said. You took into account the actual reality on the streets and the actual mentality of the majority of the people who use them. The bike crowd do seem to have an attitude that they are morally…"

"Samantha, I ride a bike to work. I don't feel holy about it. I never think about the environment while I'm riding. I simply enjoy it personally. I drive too. Your generalizations are simply inaccurate. Have you tried biking?"

Calla Wiemer commented on Overland Avenue's blog post Westside Neighborhood Council -- Bike Lanes On Westwood?!?
"There was a good turn out at the Council meeting in support of bike lanes.  That die-hard bikers such as myself spoke in favor was not surprising.  What was surprising was that many people who are not now biking Westwood Blvd said they…"

michael derek mccoy commented on Overland Avenue's blog post Massage Parlors in Picwood
"I have noticed quite a few massage parlors,and pot places. We have to put a stop to these types of businesses, before it's to late. It sends the wrong message. "

barney desimone commented on Overland Avenue's blog post Westside Neighborhood Council -- Bike Lanes On Westwood?!?
"Dylan, my objection to bike lanes on Westwood is not a matter of "personal taste" as you stated. It's a matter of safety. That's point number one. Don't put words in my mouth. If we're going to have an intelligent…"

Calla Wiemer commented on Overland Avenue's blog post Westside Neighborhood Council -- Bike Lanes On Westwood?!?

"For the record, I am a person who bikes on Westwood, and it is scary sometimes. I am not a "developer." The only development I support is for safe streets for people of all ages and all modes of transportation. The image of a 1950s-esque…"

"Traffic is at such a terrible level in the area that we need to start thinking about how to deal with it. And it's not by just having more lanes for cars."

Massage Parlors in Picwood

Posted on February 12, 2013 at 7:31pm 1 Comment

Like the proliferation of mattress stores, we now have a proliferation of massage parlors.

 

These are NOT allowed in the Neighborhood Oriented District (NOD) that runs along Pico and up Westwood.

 

Some are perfectly legit, if they were allowed, but they are not.  And some of them, most notably the most recent addition across from the Landmark, may be something "more" than massage, at least according to a few websites and Craigslist.

Westside Neighborhood Council -- Bike Lanes On Westwood?!?

Posted on February 12, 2013 at 7:26pm 19 Comments

Please come to the Westside Neighborhood Council meeting this Thursday evening at 7 p.m.

 

There will be someone from the LA Bike Coalition discussing proposed bike lanes on Sepulveda, Westwood, and Avenue of the Stars -- something that is scheduled for hearing on February 19th.

 

We love cycling and want to create a bike network on the Westside, but anyone who walks or drives down Westwood between Pico and Santa Monica knows that taking out lanes, or parking, or…

Pico Repaving -- At Last! February 25th & 26th

Posted on February 12, 2012 at 7:28pm 0 Comments

Last year Pico was repaved from Beverly Glen to Westwood.  The balance, to the 405 was put "on hold" while there is bridge widening and other improvements going on under the 405 at Pico.

The good news is that the section of Pico between Westwood and Sepulveda will now be repaved (Sepulveda to the 405 must wait until the bridge and other roadwork is completed).  The re-paving will be done over the weekend of February 25th in order to reduce business impacts, traffic disruption, and…
