Portraits of Hope: Neon in 3-D at the Lily Pond
August 1, 2017

It’s about to be a bright, beautiful night in Beverly Hills tomorrow, Wednesday, August 2nd!

Mayor Lili Bosse and the City Council invite you to join them as they unveil an awe-inspiring creation by artist Ed Massey on Wednesday, August 2nd  at 8:00 pm at the Lily Pond in Beverly Hills Garden Park. “Portraits of Hope: Neon in 3-D at the Lily Pond” is just the beginning of a B.O.L.D. (Beverly Hills Open Later Days) month in Beverly Hills and you will not want to miss this grand opening.

The historic Beverly Hills Sign and Lily Pond will be transformed and brought to life with more than 1,000 art discs painted in eye-popping, fluorescent colors. 3-D glasses will be on hand to experience the colors appearing to rise off of the discs, floating in the air. A delight for children and adults alike, this wonderful installation is perfect summer fun for all to enjoy. To learn more, go to beverlyhills.org/BOLD and we cannot wait to see you there!

Arup/WSCCOG Future of Our Cities Event
June 7, 2017

Technology is transforming how we think about transportation. Autonomous vehicles will imminently impact our cities and how we get around. Coordinating land use and transportation planning together with active mobility has never been more important.

How is technology shaping the future of urban transportation? How can technology affect universal access? How will evolving transportation providers address the needs of seniors and the disabled? How will the autonomous vehicle market respond to the safety needs of pedestrians and cyclists as we seek to meet our Vision Zero goals?

As Measure M implementation begins and new Senate Bill 1 investments are being planned, ensuring universal access is an urgent public policy topic. Join us for a lively discussion with panelists who are leading the way in tackling these challenging issues:

  • Honorable John Mirisch | Councilmember, City of Beverly Hills
  • Seleta Reynolds | General Manager, Los Angeles Department of Transportation
  • Stephanie Ramirez | Associate State Director, AARP, California
  • Will Baumgardner | Principal, Transport & Mobility Leader, Arup

Additional speakers to be announced.

Following the panel discussion, please join us for refreshments at our reception.

This event is sponsored by Arup and cohosted by the Westside Cities Council of Governments.
