Wilmington/Imperial Rosa Parks Meeting

You are invited to attend a community workshop to develop a Beautification Plan for your neighborhood.

Please plan to join us at the final community workshop to view the
conceptual station design to improve pedestrian access and safety at
the Wilmington/Imperial/Rosa Parks Blue Line station. At the January 9,
2010 meeting, Metro’s presentation of the initial concept included the
creation of a pedestrian plaza, partial relocation of the bus bays, and
relocation of short-term parking, and construction of a new parking
structure across from the station to serve Metro riders who drive to
the station.

Your participation and feedback is very important during this stage, and throughout the station improvement planning process.

Getting there
Go Metro: Ride lines 53 and 205. Visit metro.net
to find out how to get to the meeting using Metro. If you drive,
parking is available in the school’s parking lot located off El Segundo

For more information about the project, please contact Ginny Brideau at ginny@therobertgroup.com or 323.669.7654
