I was on @KCRW talking about how cities have opened streets to give people more space move around outside—and what this might look like in a place like LA, where our sidewalks are insufficient even in non-pandemic times  https://www.kcrw.com/news/shows/greater-la/news-medias-financial-woes-during-covid-19/road-closures-covid-19 

There's a plan currently being proposed by the Del Rey neighborhood council which would limit access on a handful of streets to local traffic only, much in the same way construction closures work  https://la.curbed.com/2020/4/15/21221347/los-angeles-close-street-traffic-coronavirus 

Del Rey's neighborhood council is working with @MikeBoninLA's office which has been very supportive of the idea to open streets.

Here's the response one listener received from another council district when they asked if their neighborhood could try a similar plan 🙃

I’ve gotten so many different guesses about which councilmember’s office gave this bogus reponse and that’s saying a lot about LA right now
