LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — If you want a plaza, parklet or bike corral in your LA neighborhood, there’s a way to get your voice heard.
The first information session on the city’s new People Street program is set for Monday evening in Van Nuys. (5:30 p.m., Marvin Braude Center, 6262 Van Nuys Blvd.)
Valerie Watson, with the LA Dept of Transportation, says it’s up to community members to propose project locations, get local support and find funding.
The plan is to hear from the people about how to transform underused roadway to create vibrant spaces in our neighborhoods.
“It’s very new for the city to do business this way,” said Watson.
Claudia Peschiutta of KNX1070 reports, the city can kick in some money for plazas and DOT can help out with bike corrals.
