Motor Avenue Improvement Association - October 2010

Welcome New Members!

Although the weather hasn't made up its mind, fall is upon us! We would like to welcome our new members and thank you for your support - our work is entirely dependent on your contributions and input.

We hope to make this year a very productive one, as we get started on several short and long-term projects, including:

  • Bi-weekly street cleaning and trash removal program, including more trash receptacles
  • Improved bicycle parking
  • E-Waste recycling program
  • St. Patty's Day festival
  • Discount program for Waste Management services
  • New farmers' market
We are also taking steps to prepare for the arrival of the Expo Rail Line and ensure that local businesses benefit from the increased traffic to our area, as well as solving traffic calming and sidewalk display issues.

If you are interested in being a part of any of our projects, please send us an email. We could especially use volunteers to help plan logistics for the farmers' market.

Motor@NationalPlease don't hesitate to contact us  with your ideas, questions, and comments. We hope to make our organization a fully interactive part of the community where we can work on common issues together.

Expo Line Updates

The Expo Line has been making slow but relatively steady progress in our direction in the past few months. Unfortunately, according to the LA Times, recent problems are delaying it even more:
