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

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

Gallery Pick of the Week: The Spooky Photos of Cig Harvey & Paula McCartney at Kopeikin Gallery

Posted by Scupine on June 10, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

“It is not the moon, I tell you.

It is these flowers

lighting the yard.”

In an essay accompanying Cig Harvey's latest show/book of photography, Vicki Goldberg quotes the above poem by Louise Gluck, as a way of describing the feeling of Harvey's works [like the image to the left, entitled Sadie & the Moon.] 

Goldberg continues: "Harvey's light sources are uncommonly elusive and unpredictable, even verging on the conundrum....At Cig Harvey’s bidding, light waltzes dashingly across the ordinary routes of day and night alike, while her loving and enterprising camera fills in the empty spaces on their dance cards."

See if you agree at Kopeikin Gallery, starting this Saturday, June 13. The opening…


Sound Off About Mansionization and Fiber Optic Internet Service at Tonight's Culver City Council Meeting

Posted by Scupine on June 8, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The Culver City Council invites your input on two issues at tonight’s council meeting: the increasing development of large single-family homes in the city (“mansionization”) and a proposed municipal fiber network project. The meeting is tonight, June 8, at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers of Culver City Hall, 9770 Culver Blvd.


The city council has received complaints regarding "mansionization" in the city -- the practice of replacing an older, smaller home with a home that is much larger than those in the surrounding area and which, because of its size, changes the scale and character of a neighborhood. The council has directed staff to provide background information, analysis, and recommendations regarding potential regulations – and invites…

Westwood Greenway…Open Space next to the Expo Line

If you go by the Expo Line construction in Rancho Park/West LA you’ll see test trains, new crossing gates, and lots of construction vehicles and workers between Overland Ave. and Westwood Blvd.  This wide swath of public land has been a staging area for the Phase 2 construction and is now a dumping ground for extra asphalt, unused catenary poles, and broken-down equipment.

However, a group of dedicated community members has been looking beyond the construction and envisioning the…
