TOD Community Meetings Along Green and Blue Lines
Community Health Councils in partnership with the Department of City Planning and the Department of County Public Health’s Project RENEW will be hosting a series of three community meetings along the Metro Blue and Green Lines. I have attached three different fliers for the community meetings. We would love to extend an invitation to your South LA writer as this is a significant development in the transformation of the South LA built environment.
The meetings are the conclusion of a community engagement process that began last March and will provide community stakeholders a forum for discussion and comment on a city-led plan to transform and reshape neighborhoods in 10 Transit Oriented Districts (TOD). At the meetings the Department of City Planning will be introducing a draft TOD study for public discussion and feedback. As you know, aside from providing significant economic benefits to stations areas, TODs can reduce the barriers to exercise and encourage physical activity. We are expecting a good turnout and hoping that this is the beginning of many activities led by the community to advocate for healthier streetscape and land-use decisions.
The meeting times and locations are:
January 31, 2012 Watts Senior Center (1657 E Century Blvd) 6PM-8PM
February 9, 2012 Augustus Hawkins Natural Park (5790 Compton Ave) 6PM-8PM
