Gold Line Station Guardian, Mount Washington | Todd Frankel

News & Notes:

  • Call it a Gil-I-Buster:  A Highland Park meeting on proposed Figueroa Street bike lanes drew numerous complaints about the format of the gathering, which prevented the public from expressing opinions and featured a lengthy presentation and talk by Councilman Gil Cedillo, according to EGP News.   One of the persons who walked out of the June 12 told EGP News that  audience members “were unhappy Cedillo chose to ‘filibuster’ the meeting rather than listen to their feedback.”
  • A ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for Saturday morning at the site of York Park in Highland Park.  The park, which will be built on the site of a former York Boulevard gas station, was the result of several community planning meetings.
  • A judge rejected Occidental College’s request that he seal portions of a lawsuit filed by a male student over his expulsion from the Eagle Rock school for alleged sexual misconduct, reports the L.A. Times.
