AIA|LA: The Hollywood Community Plan

-a roundtable discussion-
Wednesday, January 18 (6:30pm-8:30pm)
AIA Los Angeles
3780 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 800
Los Angeles, CA 90010

Limited Capacity. Please RSVP to Will Wright.

You are invited join the AIA|LA Urban Design Committee in roundtable discussion about the proposed Hollywood Community Plan. Kevin Keller and Mary Richardson from the Department of City Planning will participate in the discussion, as well.

The objectives of the meeting will be to learn more about the current status of the proposal and to identify an effective strategy for helping to broadcast greater understanding and support for the long term vision of the Hollywood community.

Rather than simply serving as a cursory presentation of the Hollywood Community Plan, the roundtable will serve as an opportunity for architects, urban planners, community activists and civic leaders to engage in an open discussion about how we can all work together to contribute to the civic discourse and reach a greater consensus about our social, environmental and aesthetic values that will help shape the future of our city.

To access all of the Exhibits and appendices to the Hollywood Community Plan please visit the Department of City Planning website and click on New Community Plans.
