Crafting a new vision for a diverse city of over four million people – one that spans nearly 470 miles – is an enormously complex task. The Department of City Planning, which is spearheading the plan, must conduct research and analysis, analyze data on current and future trends, incorporate specialized expertise from multiple disciplines, prepare environmental analysis, and craft policy proposals. Just as importantly, it is essential to build ongoing public consensus to ensure that the plan reflects the concerns and aspirations of community members. To achieve these objectives, the OurLA2040 team will be posting information about the plan development process and opportunities to get involved.
Late February, the OurLA2040 team conducted a fourth Community Conversation for residents to participate and share their ideas to shape LA’s future. Please click the following link to learn more about the takeaways on Open Space from this meeting in South Los Angeles.
