Public Notice

Please come provide your input on the People Street Program and Design Elements during the Leimert Park Village Stakeholders Meeting held on Monday July 28th @ 10:00 am @ the Historic Vision Theatre, 3341 W. 43rd Place, Los Angeles.

As we shared earlier this month, the Department Transportation's recommendation to establish the Leimert Park Village People Street on 43rd Place from Degnan to Leimert Boulevard was approved by City Council on Thursday July 3rd!!! The People Street will provide a permanent outdoor area to stage festivals, art shows, dance fest, recreational activities, concerts and much more!  

The Institute for Maximum Human Potential (IMHP) is the lead agency for the project in partnership with Ben Caldwell - Kaos Network, the Vision Theatre & Manchester Jr. Arts Center, Art & Practice and several other arts and cultural organizations. 

USC Professor Francois Bar assigned his Annenberg School Innovation Lab Tactical Media class to design interactive activities and events for the demonstration concept on March 30th and will continue to assist with program development. 

Alison Kendall - Kendall Planning + Design provided pro-bono architectural and design services and Sherri Franklin - Urban Design Center provided probono project management support.  Sherri and Alison will lead the discussion on design and programming. 

The People Street is an outgrowth of the 20|20 Vision Initiative effort to promote the economic development and renaissance of Leimert Park Village. 

The 20|20 Vision Initiative Thought Leadership team includes: Romerol Malveaux, James Burks - Cultural Affairs Department, Johnnie Raines, Clint Rosemond and Brenda Shockley - LPV Crenshaw Corridor BID. Sylvia Lacy, District Director for Council District 10, is a dedicated partner in managing the infrastructure planning and business development in the Village. The commitment and support for transforming Leimert Park Village into a thriving arts and cultural economy is simply unparalleled!

Thanks Sherri Franklin for posting this page to keeps us in the know and updated on the Metro project. I applaud you. It takes zillions of grains of sand to create a beach. The process has begun.
