One of Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan's commission appointees resigned Thursday, saying he was asked to step down because he was not supportive enough of Riordan's plan for turning some city services over to private firms. The resignation of Ryan Snyder from the city's Transportation Commission is the latest in a reorganization by the Riordan Administration designed to refocus the mayor's agenda as he enters his second year in office.

It was all he had left, 11 more games, maybe 12 if Arizona State was good enough to get into a bowl, and then Ryan Kealy would be done with football and it would be time to get on with his life. He had no NFL option, really. Kealy had thrown for 6,274 yards and 44 touchdowns in three years for the Sun Devils, and when his career was over, would rank only behind Jake Plummer in the school's record book.

Ryan Snyder, a transportation consultant who ran for the 5th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council last month, has been appointed to the Westwood Design Review Board. Snyder was named to the post by Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky, who defeated him in the election. Yaroslavsky said Snyder impressed him with his understanding of neighborhood and regional problems. The review board was established last year to ensure that future development in the Westwood Community Plan area is compatible with the plan.

When Zev Yaroslavsky backed out of one political fight, he ran into another. Deciding against a race for mayor of Los Angeles because he thought he would lose, he announced that he will seek reelection as a councilman in the traditionally friendly 5th District, which covers much of the Westside. But Friday, as he was bowing out of the mayoral election, it was clear that he will have opposition in the council race.

Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky's three opponents usually place an empty chair at his spot on the dais when he skips joint campaign events. The chair is supposed to symbolize Yaroslavsky's absence from the 5th District race, but it also says a lot about the frustrations of running against a powerful incumbent who appears to be in no real danger of losing his seat.

Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky has asked the council's planning and environment committee to consider forcing developers to include parking areas for bicycles in their projects. Yaroslavsky said many more people would travel by bicycle if there were appropriate storage and parking areas. The councilman made the suggestion at the urging of Ryan Snyder, a UCLA graduate student who has been promoting a bicycle freeway from Westwood to West Los Angeles.

Citizens for the West Los Angeles Veloway, a group seeking to develop a two-mile elevated bikeway from Westwood to West Los Angeles, has begun a drive to raise $2 million to $3 million. The money is needed to draw matching funds from government sources to build the bikeway, estimated to cost $7 million to $10 million, according to spokesman Ryan Snyder. "If we can meet our fund-raising goal, the remainder of the money should not be difficult to obtain from government sources," Snyder said.

A committee of the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission has approved a $100,000 grant for the West L.A. Veloway project, a plan to build an elevated bikeway to UCLA and Westwood Village. If the grant is approved by the full commission, as expected, it will be used to pay engineering costs for the six-lane bicycle freeway, said Ryan Snyder, executive director of the group spearheading the project. UCLA and the city transportation department have already committed $213,000.

The Los Angeles County Transportation Commission has given a $100,000 grant to the West Los Angeles Veloway, a two-mile elevated bike path that would connect the UCLA campus to Westside communities such as Palms and Brentwood. The money will go to pay for design and engineering costs, said Executive Director Ryan Snyder. The project, which has been in the planning stages for five years, has already received funds from the UCLA School of Engineering and Los Angeles County.
