South LA Bike & Pedestrian Workshops

South LA Bike & Pedestrian Workshops
The Planning Department is considering creating Transit-Oriented Districts (TOD’s) around stations along the Metro Blue and Green Lines in South Los Angeles.

The purpose of these districts is to promote bicycling, walking and the use of public transit while at the same time beautifying the neighborhood. A key component of this project is hearing from residents and businesses about what is important to them.

Planning for Community Engagement in Urban Planning

“SPEED BUMPS,” volunteered a participant in response to questions about what would improve the overall quality, safety, and walkability of their neighborhood.

Speed bumps would slow the speed at which shooters could get away, […]
