People St is excited to announce the installation and official opening of one of three People St Plazas approved under the inaugural application cycle for the program!
NoHo Plaza is located in an underutilized alley west of Lankershim Boulevard and north of Magnolia Boulevard in the heart of the North Hollywood Arts District.
This portion of alley has been repurposed as a public plaza space with tables, chairs, and umbrellas for people to enjoy. This cafe-style seating will allow NoHo Plaza the flexibility to become a destination for cultural activities, as well as a place for people to gather or relax on a day-to-day basis. A colorful surface treatment and perimeter planters define the Plaza bounds. People-scale identity and wayfinding signs feature a map with local destinations all within walking or bicycling distance of the site, such as the North Hollywood Metro Red Line Station.
NoHo Plaza is managed and maintained by the NoHo BID, who applied under the People St program and was selected to partner with LADOT. Leveraging their ongoing operational budget and other funds, NoHo BID is responsible for initial purchase of all Plaza furnishings as well as ongoing maintenance and Plaza programming. NoHo BID will work with an array of community organizations to host public activities and events at the Plaza. For more information on future happenings and a calendar of events, visit nohobid.com.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for announcements around the People St Plazas in Leimert Park Village and Pacoima!
