In  December  2012,  the  Downtown  Los  Angeles  community  voted to  approve  a  Community Facilities  District  (CFD)  to  provide  matching  funds  to  finance  the  proposed  LA  Streetcar Project.  The Streetcar will link the Civic Center to the Historic Core along Broadway and the LA Live Entertainment District.  The project’s goal is to help transform Downtown into a lively live, work, and play destination.

 

  • How was the campaign orchestrated?
  • What are the benefits of the Streetcar to the new Downtown?
  • What can other communities learn from the CFD’s success?

 

With presentation by and conversation with our guest speaker:

Carol Shatz
President & Chief Executive Officer, Central City Association of Los Angeles and Downtown Center Business Improvement District
Member of the Board, Community Facilities District
