Completed Projects: Reseda Village
Reseda Village became a LANI neighborhood in 1997. LANI helped the community prioritize the improvements they wanted to see on Sherman Way between Tampa Ave. and Hesperia Ave. and Reseda Blvd. between Saticoy St. and Vanowen St. By 2001, LANI had helped the community implement a number of neighborhood improvements including a comprehensive community work plan, 201 street trees and tree grates, the design for 118 pedestrian street lights, decorative crosswalks at five major intersections, and painted street lights and traffic poles.
In addition, LANI helped leverage additional grants, including federal funds, for the community to plan and implement streetscape projects in conjunction with Los Angeles Department of Transportation and Caltrans, funds from the Department of Water and Power for street-pole painting, funds from Urban Resources Partnership for community groups, funds from Metro for a pocket park to be incorporated into an existing bus stop and funds from the LA Conservation Corps for tree purchases. Revitalize Reseda, a non-profit organization established by community volunteers in 2007, addresses quality of life issues in the Reseda community. Revitalize Reseda has been instrumental in implementing and maintaining many of the area projects. The group has applied for and received several LANI Maintenance Matching Funds Grants over the past several years.
