This week, #DamienTalks with Laura Cornejo, the sustainability officer for Metro who is one of the agency's leaders for Open Streets events. Metro has been funding a series of Open Streets events throughout L.A. County, ending with this weekend's 626, the amazing 18-mile multi-jurisdictional car-free party.
If you're just joining us, 626 Golden Streets will be this Sunday, June 26. Metro, Bike SGV, seven cities and a host of other organizations invite you to explore 18+ miles of open streets linking 6 Foothill Gold Line stations and 7 San Gabriel Valley cities stretching from South Pasadena to Azusa.
For more information, visit 626GoldenStreets.com.
After the talk with Cornejo, we are replaying our #DamienTalks from April 7 with South Pasadena Mayor Pro-Tem Michael Cacciotti. Cacciotti has been a critical figure in the effort to create the 626 both as an elected official and an advocate. As a fun bonus, the interview takes place on the Gold Line itself as Michael is heading home from work.
#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of Downtown L.A.
