FROM THIS EPISODE

A proposal to make Olympic and Pico Boulevards into real one-way thoroughfares has gone nowhere.  Now Mayor Villaraigosa has a new plan that could make them one way just part of the time. On Reporter’s Notebook, would more camping mean more fires in the mountains of Malibu?

Main Topic Villaraigosa Proposes Modified One-Way Plan For Pico And Olympic 19 MIN, 9 SEC

To relieve gridlock on LA’s West Side, County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky proposed limiting Olympic and Pico Boulevards to one-way traffic in opposite directions. That went nowhere, but now Mayor Villaraigosa has proposed a compromise he calls the “new, smart way to reduce traffic congestion.” He would eliminate parking on both streets during rush hour right away. Next year, traffic lights would be re-timed to speed traffic westbound on Olympic and east on Pico.  Step three might be re-striping the lanes to provide more eastbound lanes on Pico and vice versa on Olympic.

Reporter's Notebook Malibu Divided over Expanding Camping 5 MIN, 8 SEC

Fire officials say the weekend blaze in Malibu was caused by human activity, although they still have not labeled it either intentional or accidental.  It does appear it began in a cave that’s often used for camp outs and late-night parties. In either case, the Malibu City Council is expected to vote next week on a proposal that would encourage more camping in the Santa Monica Mountains

Jeff Jennings, Mayor, City of Malibu
