Here Are the 7 Spots Getting LA's First Pop-Up Public Plazas

New, 14 comments

As part of Mayor Garcetti's Great Streets Program, Los Angeles also launched People St., to help people efficiently create new public spaces in their neighborhoods (like the Sunset Triangle Plaza in Silver Lake, a precursor to People St.). Today the program's first seven test locations have been released, reports Streetsblog: There will be three plazas and four parklets spread across the Valley (North Hollywood, Pacoima), the Westside (Palms, Pacific Palisades), Downtown, and South LA (Leimert Park). Now that the applications for new spaces have been approved, the projects will have help from LADOT getting permits and will hopefully start construction in the fall. (People St. projects are approved for just a year, after which they either have to reapply or return the street to its previous layout.)

(* denotes conditionally recommended proposals that need a little tweaking before they move onto the "design development phase" with the rest of the group.)
