Park 101 Community Outreach Meeting

The Park 101 District is an innovative plan for capping the 101 Freeway
in the Downtown area. It will provide opportunities for the creation of
new signature urban boulevards along First Street, Cesar Chavez Avenue,
Sunset Boulevard, Alameda Avenue, and Grand Avenue that will become
models for future great streets throughout Los Angeles. This area would
also become the cornerstone for new livable communities and corridors
for development in the adjacent neighborhoods of Chinatown, Little
Tokyo, Boyle Heights, Highland Park, Echo Park, Bunker Hill, Civic
Center, Historic Downtown, and Broadway!
