Community Driven Streetscapes

LA

In an effort to make its streets more pedestrian and cyclist friendly, Los Angeles’s Department of Transportation is launching People St. The new grassroots initiative allows community members to apply online for city approval to transform unfrequented stretches of road into parklets, bike corrals, and plazas. While the applicant will bear the costs of the installation and upkeep, the city will provide the infrastructure that will convert existing spaces into safe and welcoming places for the community. Slated to begin in early 2014, People St. will address the growing demand for public space in L.A.
