Tomorrow will be the first of three public meetings at which the city’s Sunset Boulevard “bulb-out” test and its impact on traffic will be discussed. The bulb-outs are part of the “Sunset Experience,” a six-month project introduced in November 2018 with painted bulb-outs from the sidewalks and the installation of the tall white poles and black planters around them. The city’s intention was to increase the walkability of Sunset Strip in this area.
The matter will be on the agenda of Wednesday’s Public Facilities Commission meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd., south of Santa Monica. Parking is free in the five-story structure behind the Chambers with a ticket validated in the lobby.
The meeting will be televised and also can be watched online live or later at https://www.weho.org/city-government/wehotv
The agenda for the meeting can be obtained online.
On May 15, the bulb-outs will be on the agenda of the city’s Transportation Commission. It will meet from 7 to 10 p.m. in the community conference room at City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Blvd. at Sweetzer. The agenda for that meeting is not yet available.
And on June 17 the matter will be on the agenda of the City Council, which will meet in the Council Chambers at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd., south of Santa Monica. That agenda has not yet been made public. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. and can also be watched online live or later at https://www.weho.org/city-government/wehotv
