What if Los Angeles began planning for the pedestrian and the two-wheeled commuter instead of the driver? A street like Ventura Boulevard, lined with stores, coffee shops, and restaurants could become a major shopping, dining and recreational destination, instead of an alternative to the 101.
What if the first leg of the new Olive Line Subway connecting Burbank to Universal City to Sherman Oaks also included the removal of all curbside parking? You could ascend the steps of Laurel or Van Nuys or Sepulveda Station to find widened sidewalks filled with shoppers and joggers. People walking, talking, being city-like.
What if there was a dedicated, grade separated bikeway running alongside, in place of where street parking used to be? We could have a pedestrian corridor, with bike racks, automated public toilets, benches, and trees.
What if it was a matter of you voting yes or no?
