Expo Line Extension from Culver City to Santa Monica On Target for Spring 2016 Opening

Posted by Scupine on June 29, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

The 6.6-mile, $1.5 billion extension of the Expo Line from Culver City to Santa Monica reached another milestone on Monday, when for the first time a train ran to the Palms station under its own power.

Said to the Santa Monica Lookout, "This month, the authority began some preliminary testing of trains as far west as Centinela Boulevard -- between Military Avenue and Centinela -- but the tests so far have involved trains being pulled by other trains and not running on their own power as [was] the case at Monday's test."

The line is expected to be operational by Spring of 2016.

There will be seven stations between Culver City and Santa Monica: Palms, Westwood/Rancho Park, Exposition/Sepulveda, Exposition/Bundy, 26th Street/Bergamot, 17th Street/Santa Monica College…

Triathletes 'Lap Up' Organized Swim Workouts

Posted by Elizabeth Artley on June 24, 2015 at 3:24pm 0 Comments

Jason May and Melanie Webber, two local triathletes, have excelled in competition and both started out in the pool: the Culver City Plunge. One has reached the elite level and the other is a novice swimmer, but they both enjoy the sport and the time they spend swimming laps at Culver City’s beautiful pool.

Triathlon season is approaching! And they’re gearing up again.

Melanie Webber has competed in nine triathlons, but has no swimming background. She describes herself as a “complete amateur” in the water, but says that since she joined the adult swim club Southern California Aquatics (SCAQ) in 2008, her technique has improved.

“Being at the Plunge is an integral part of my training,” she said. “In fact, it’s the only way I’ve…

Marina Del Rey Fisherman's Village to Headed Toward a Makeover

Posted by Scupine on June 16, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

As someone who remembers what Fisherman's Village in Marina Del Rey looked like 40 years ago (pretty much exactly the way it does now, folks), I think its redevelopment is a mixed blessing. I can't really tell whether its current shabbiness is charming or depressing -- do I have to choose?

As the latest renderings from Studio One Eleven (a division of P+R Architects) show, the Village's current leaseholders Gold Coast Village LLC seem to want to transform it into a more upscale, Santa Monica Place-ish attraction. The new proposal (now in its early stages) would include a five-story hotel, high-end retail and restaurants, a food court with a rooftop beer garden, parking garage, and an environmental education…

Save the Date: Culver City CicLAvia is August 9

Posted by Scupine on June 11, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

It's official: on Sunday, August 9, you'll be able to ride your bike from downtown Culver City to the ocean with only 9 stops. CicLAvia is coming to Culver City. 

During these free CicLAvia events, whole streets are shut down to car traffic, encouraging bicyclists and pedestrians to explore the city and participate in a space that is normally dominated by automobiles. Since it began in 2010, CicLAvia has quickly become Los Angeles County’s most popular public event, consistently attracting more than 100,000 participants. In 2013, Culver City’s Parcel B and Main Street served as a hub for CicLavia -- to wonderful effect

Culver City CicLAvia is a…
