The Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council’s Community Forum on Saturday, October 18, features a “Panel of Visionaries” offering different perspectives and strategies for addressing the current state of transportation in the West Valley.
The forum will be held at the AMC Promenade Theater from 8:30 am to 12:00 noon and includes complimentary breakfast.
Joyce Pearson, Neighborhood Council Chair, urges the community to partner with the council and says “It is imperative that we work together to pursue great innovations and solutions in transportation so that we can ‘Get Woodland Hills Moving!’”
The “Panel of Visionaries” includes Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, Assemblyman Mike Feuer, Allison Yoh of the Rand Corp. and Professor Donald Shoup of UCLA.
Councilwoman Greuel is the Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Los Angeles and Chairs the Transportation Committee. Greuel is a champion for the City’s Strategic Transportation Plan, a comprehensive citywide vision that requires an investment in long term planning.
Assemblyman Mike Feuer represents the 42nd district and is leading the charge to transform LA’s transportation infrastructure with measure R, a proposed 0.5% sales tax for transportation funding, resulting in $40 billion for major transportation improvements throughout Los Angeles County.
Allison Yoh is a former Board member for the Metro and is a member of the Rand Corp. team responsible for the recently released report “Moving Los Angeles” which offers Angelenos short-term transportation solutions that can be implemented over the next five years.
Donald Shoup is a Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA and is the author of “The High Cost of Free Parking” which establishes parking as a key link between transportation and land use, with important consequences for the community, the economy, and the environment.
