Eyes on the Street: A tree-root-damaged city facility sidewalk we’d like to see repaired. This one is in front of a Los Angeles City pay parking lot on Vermont Avenue at 6th Street, on the same block as Metro’s Wilshire/Vermont Red Line Station. This week, L.A.’s Budget Committee voted to focus repair funds only on sidewalks abutting city facilities. Are there city-facility-adjacent sidewalks, preferably in high-pedestrian-volume areas, that you’d like to see fixed? Let us know locations in the comments and we’ll pass the word along to city staff. Joe Linton/Streetsblog L.A.

Eyes On the Street: Cars Parking On Sidewalks
