Eyes On The Street: Sunset Triangle Park Plaza Gets New Paint

There's a fresh coat of bright green paint on L.A.'s Sunset Triangle Park plaza! This space had been Griffith Park Boulevard roadway for many years. In early 2012, it was re-purposed to support local businesses, sitting, eating, walking, and bicycling.

Just as Streetsblog's Sahra Sulaiman was reporting that it was looking a bit worse for the wear, the city happened to be re-painting. The new paint job looks great, other than being slightly marred by some kind of white wash. No word on whether the original polka-dots will return.

More plazas are on the way, including in Leimert Park, thanks to the L.A. City Department of Transportation's (LADOT) new People St program. Residents or businesses can apply to work with the city to bring a plaza - or parklet or bicycle corral - to your very own street. The initial round of applications are due April 30th - the middle of next week. An annual round will take place each year in October through November.

Where would you like to see a new plaza, parklet, or bike corral?
