Streetcar Workshops Come to Los Angeles Next Week


Many of the Workshops at Next Week’s Conference Were Based on the Book Street Smart

One week from today, the Seaside Institute will be holding am all-day workshop on streetcars at the Orpheum Theatre.  With the news last winter that the city is thinking of putting a trolley back on Broadway, this workshop could provide a blueprint for what L.A. should be doing to maximize its investment.

From the press release announcing the workshop:

Streetcars and Cities in the 21st Century, in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 22. Find out how these powerful public-private partnerships can leverage tremendous value for property owners and local businesses, help market higher-density development and a “green” lifestyle, and achieve public goals like affordability, sustainability, parks and high quality public space.

Streetcars have been the catalyst for these goals in communities as diverse as Kenosha, Wisconsin, Tampa, Little Rock, Portland and San Francisco.
