Just in time for its 2016 annual meeting, Downtown Pasadena Neighborhood Association (DPNA) will be hosting Ethan ELkin, a special guest speaker to talk about The Gold Line’s past and future.
Ethan Elkins is the author of “Railtown”, which covers the history of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. He’s also an attorney who directs the climate program at the Center for Law, Energy and the Environment (CLEE) at UC Berkeley Law. He also has an appointment at the UCLA Law’s Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.
Ethan will discuss the recent history of the Gold Line and its prospective future, if Measure M, Los Angeles county’s transportation tax and master plan to build out a world-class, comprehensive transit network.
“Railtown”, Ethan’s book, covers the history of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system by drawing on archival documents, contemporary news accounts, and interviews with many of the key players to provide critical behind-the-scenes accounts of the people and forces that shaped the system.
This is a free event.
> Following the presentation, the DPNA will briefly conduct business, electing a slate of Directors and entertaining motions to amend the bylaws.
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
