Edited at 11:53 to clarify who broke the news that Rita Robinson is leaving LADOT.

Some stuff to much on:

The Los Angeles Times  confirmed that the person in charge at LADOT, Rita Robinson, is departing for a position with Los Angeles County. LA Streetsblog initially reported that there were “rumors” of her departure. There is already debate amongst livable streets activists at LA Streetsblog over the qualities that they’d like the next director to possess.

Just three weeks to our first CicLAvia. Coverage of yesterday’s press conference: ABC, HuffPo.

Per Ted Rogers of Biking In LAand the LADOT Bike Blog, the Westholme sharrows are back. I plan to Xoot over them later today and post pictures.
