Completed Projects: West Boulevard Community Linkages and Revitalization Plan

Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative, in collaboration with METRO, the Los Angeles County Transportation Authority, and the Technical Advisory Committee led the Project Steering Committee (PSC), area residents, and stakeholders in a community-driven planning and design process. Using LANI’s nationally recognized model for community based planning, the stakeholders established priorities for revitalization strategies and public streetscape improvements for the neighborhood surrounding the planned West Station of the Crenshaw/LAX light rail extension.

The design and outreach team was tasked with improving community connections to the future transit line, identifying public and private realm projects to revitalize, and to identify capital improvements to renew or repurpose this neighborhood to better serve the diverse needs of the community. The plan developed through the proven LANI model aims to serve community members’ needs first, and provide a framework to attain identified goals over time, through pursuit of a precise vision.
