Southern California Planning Congress: The Future of Union Station

“The Future of Union Station:

Who’s on Board and Where Are They Going?”

 

For decades during the 20th Century, with millions of people traveling westward, Union Station was destined to become a launching pad for the American dream. As one of the most beautiful public buildings in Los Angeles and a local, state, and national historic treasure, Union Station has played a special role in fulfilling LA’s function as a metropolitan beacon for
California, one of the world’s largest economies.
Please join us to hear from one of the state’s leading authorities in urban redevelopment
about the re-visioning of Union Station through a forthcoming master plan being prepared by
the Los Angeles County Transportation Authority (METRO).
