Taking Back the Streets for the People

I am pleased to invite you to present your ideas to be a part of People St, a program to transform neighborhoods across our city. People St was developed by the Los Angeles department of Transportation in collaboration with our departments of Public Works and City Planning, and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, all of whom will work closely with community groups on this effort.

Fundamental to People St is its bottom-up, community-based approach. I am proud of our city’s transportation and planning experts, but no one knows more about our neighborhoods than you.

So make your voice heard and find out how you can participate by RSVPing to one of the events below:

1/27/14 - Van Nuys Community Meeting

1/30/14 - Harbor Community Meeting

2/3/14 - Downtown Community Meeting

2/4/14 - Hollywood Community Meeting

2/24/14 - Westside Community Meeting

It is fitting that such an innovative program will be taking root here in Los Angeles, where we are experiencing a fundamental shift in how we make our city streets safer and more enjoyable. I look forward to hearing your ideas and seeing the results transform our city.
