There will be a walk along Larchmont Boulevard tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 21, at 9 a.m. for anyone interested in discussing the future of Larchmont Village.
Our beloved Larchmont Boulevard has been a hot topic of discussion in the Greater Wilshire area for many years. Zoning issues, the optimal mix of businesses, how to create a successful commercial area without losing the neighborhood-serving character of the street and other questions are all ongoing.
To get input from the community, an independent group invites stakeholders, patrons, business owners, GWNC board members and alternates, community leaders, neighbors and yes, – YOU! – to join representatives of our City Council Office in a very special walk and talk event to look at the current mix of businesses and activity on Larchmont, and discuss people’s visions for the street.The goal is to facilitate a conversation and see what bubbles to the top. How can we best support our local businesses? What would we like the street to look like in five years? What items do we have in our civic toolkit (zoning, enforcement, community involvement, business and neighborhood associations, etc.) that can help us achieve our dreams?
Date: Saturday, September 21
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Meeting Place: Outside Go Get ‘Em Tiger, 230 N. Larchmont Blvd.
Facilitators/Guides: John Kaliski, GWNC Land Use Committee Member and Principal, John Kaliski Architects…and Patty Lombard, GWNC Board Member
After the walk, the group will gather at Coldwell Banker’s North office, 251 N. Larchmont, for a discussion of what we’ve seen and noted along the street.
It’s going to be an enlightening morning…don’t miss it!
