Living Streets LA is excited to be partnering with Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar on the York Living Streets project. Our team will be working with the community to create an action plan and to build small-scale living streets projects–such as streetside mini-plazas, bike features, pedestrian landscaping, neighborhood art and more. The focus will be York Boulevard from Avenue 50 through Avenue 56, though some projects and ideas may reach nearby areas as well.
While finalizing all the preparations for the project, we’ve worked with the council office to introduce the project through two community meetings, an initial street analysis walk and a design discussion. For an article about one of the workshops, read this article at 90042 blog.
We had planned to do two more community workshops in November; however, due to administrative delays, we must move these meetings to the new year. We now plan to do our first full-fledged design workshop in early January. Our apologies for the delay. We too are eager to get started. In the meantime, we’d like to hear your ideas! If you have thoughts on what you’d like to see for the future of York Boulevard, please comment below. Give us ideas big and small!
