A portion of Los Angeles's notoriously craggy, busted-up sidewalks could be a lot smoother in the near future, but it's only going to be the portion around city-owned properties. Sorry, people walking by private buildings! The LA City Council approved a program that will pump $27 million in to sidewalk fixes around city buildings and sites, says the Daily News. That's the most the City Council can do while they wait on the outcomes of several accessibility lawsuits.
In the meantime, the focus is on fixing the rough paths around city property. A report from the City Administrative Officer compiled 235 suggested locations for repairs, mostly at Department of Recreation and Parks sites, but also around libraries and fire departments.
