Walk This Way LA – pedestrian wayfinding working group meeting

Los Angeles Walks is creating a pedestrian wayfinding system called Walk This Way, LA that gives information on walking times between different destinations, to show connectivity between neighborhoods and change perceptions that many places are too far away to walk.

We need volunteers to help with planning and outreach in our pilot area of Leimert Park, as well as other neighborhoods around LA. If you’re interested in helping, join us on Feb. 3
