LADOT’s People St Program is excited to announce a special application cycle this winter for Parklets, Plazas, Bike Corrals, Intersection Murals, and Decorative Crosswalks in your neighborhood!
People St is an application-based program that builds partnerships between community groups and the City to transform LA streets into active, accessible places for people. In this cycle, we’re expanding our project types and making it easier than ever to apply. To ensure that every community in the city has a chance to build a People St project in their neighborhood, LADOT secured funding from Metro allowing us to provide technical design assistance and funding for materials and construction. In this application cycle, LADOT aims to build one project in every LA Council District (15 projects total).
Project Types include:
• Parklets (1-2 on-street parking spaces)
• Plazas (2,000+ ft of reclaimed street space)
• Bicycle Corrals (pending Metro approval)
• Intersection Murals (pending Metro approval)
• Decorated Crosswalks (pending Metro approval)
Are you interested in getting a project installed in your neighborhood? Your neighborhood council members, residents, business owners, and stakeholders are invited to learn more at one of our upcoming Community Workshops in December – we’ll explain the program, the funding opportunities, and the application process.
The application window opens on Dec 3rd, 2018, and initial applications must be submitted by Jan 22nd, 2019. For more information on project types click here, and check back on peoplest.lacity.org in December for guidelines on how to apply!
