Planning Department Schedules Office Hours to Solicit More Input on Purple Line TNP

Stakeholders study local building patterns at the February 23 TNP workshop.

In a message to the community yesterday, the City Planning Department announced it will be scheudling drop-in office hours, from 1-5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, to provide another opportunity for stakeholders to find out more about and/or weigh in on the proposed Purple Line Transit Neighborhood Plan. The plan will address zoning, streetscape and design guidelines for areas within a half mile of the three new Purple Line Subway stations at Wilshire and La Brea, Fairfax and La Cienega Avenues.  The office hours session will be held at the Little Ethiopia Cultural and Resource Center, 1037 S. Fairfax Ave. 

According to the message, more than 100 people attended the two most recent community workshops on the TNP, which were held on February 23 and 27, at the Pan Pacific Senior Center and Temple Beth Am, respectively.

Materials from the workshops are now available at http://www.latnp.org/purple-line/project-updates, under the “Public Workshops – February 2019” tab.

Also, says Planning:

“If you have additional comments you would like to share with us, there are a couple ways:

Complete our survey, which will help Planning staff gain a better understanding of how you experience and travel within the area and to gauge your opinions about housing affordability, parking, and design and location of new development. We have received a lot of responses so far, but are still looking for more! Responses will be accepted until March 31, 2019.

Fill out an open-ended comment form.

Contact project staff directly – e-mail Andrew Jorgensen, AICP, Project Lead, at andrew.jorgensen@lacity.org or via phone at (213) 978-1281.”

So if you weren’t able to make it to the recent workshops and would still like to learn more, there are definitely several more ways to participate in the conversation!
