LOS ANGELES—Mayor Eric Garcetti recently announced the implementation of the Great Streets Program.
The program focuses on specific improvements to defined corridors throughout Los Angeles.
The Great Streets Program is created through an executive directive, which creates a working group composed of the following departments: Department of City Planning; Department of Cultural Affairs; Department of Transportation; Department of Public Works; Economic and Workforce Development Department.
The Great Streets workgroup will be tasked with criteria and strategy for identifying streets to be included in the Great Streets program, compose a candidate list of 40 potential streets, conduct a comprehensive matrix of project elements and associated costs, come up with a strategy for the coordination of city services to Great Streets, give a time table for the implementation of the project, strategize for funding and implement metrics and benchmarks to evaluate and track project impacts.
