ARE YOU NEXT GEN? The City of West Hollywood, in an effort to engage and empower a new generation of people in local decision-making, will host NextGen: The Future of Transportation in West Hollywood, in partnership with Lyft. The event aims to spark new ideas and connections that will ignite civic impact around the subject of transportation. The “NextGen” is passionate about a myriad of issues, yet this age group is disproportionately underrepresented at all levels of governmental leadership.
The upcoming NextGen event will take place on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at The Chapel at The Abbey, located at 696 N. Robertson Boulevard. Refreshments will be served; drinks will be available for purchase.
A panel discussion will take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will cover a number of topics focused around what transportation will look like over the coming decades in the City of West Hollywood, including how those changes will impact our urban environment and our daily lives. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 6 p.m. to mix and mingle and participants will be invited to stay for additional networking after the panel discussion ends at 8 p.m.
The evening’s panelists will include participants from Lyft (Joseph Conti, General Manager); LA Metro (Marla Westervelt, Planner, Office of Extraordinary Innovation); LA Walks (Emilia Crotty, Policy and Program Manager); Nelson\Nygaard (Lilly Shoup, Principal); and the City of West Hollywood (Bianca Siegl, Long Range and Mobility Planning Manager). The panel will be moderated by Seleta Reynolds (Los Angeles Department of Transportation, General Manager). In addition to the panelists, representatives from West Hollywood Advocates for Metro Rail (WHAM) and the City of West Hollywood’s WeHo Pedals Bike Share program will be in attendance.
“Nearly half of the residents in the City of West Hollywood are under the age of 40,” said Councilmember Lindsey P. Horvath. “The NextGen event series was created in direct response to their expressed desire to engage on the issues that matter most. We need to work harder to ensure all residents are informed and have an equal voice in our decision-making, and we also need to create new opportunities for NextGen WeHo to demonstrate leadership in a 21st century city.”
