Workshop: Sunset Junction Streetscape & Transportation Plan

This hands-on workshop is an opportunity to give your input on ideas
for improving the roadways around Sunset Junction, and to discuss
specific concepts for the intersection of Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica
Blvd that improve safety and enhance the intersection for pedestrians
and transit.

The ideas discussed at the workshop will form the
basis for "The Sunset Junction Conceptual Urban Design and
Transportation Plan." This Plan will identify community priorities for
street redesigns and preferred design ideas that will ultimately direct
how funding is spent.

This workshop is part of a Metro
streetscape analysis made possible by a grant from the Southern
California Association of Governments (SCAG) and will be facilitated by
the urban planning firm Fregonese Associates.

In order for us to prepare enough materials, please RSVP to Ryan Carpio at (323) 957-4500.
