Leimert Park Village 2020 Vision Initiative
An Art & Cultural Renaissance

LPV 43rd Place People's Street Fund

The notion to close off 43rd Place from Degnan Boulevard to Leimert Boulevard in Leimert Park Village in order to enhance the area’s pedestrian oriented environment emanated from the objectives Leimert Park Village Stakeholders laid out in their 20|20 Vision Initiative in November 2013.   The Stakeholders consists of property owners, businesses, residents, artist, musicians, special event planners and members of the Greater Leimert Park Village Crenshaw Corridor BID and the Empowerment Congress West Area Neighborhood Council. 

The People's Street will feature:

  • Streetbed Surface with High Performance Paint Embossed with the Art Walk Logo and Adinkra Symbols of West Africa
  • Urban Farm Lab
  • Cafe Seating
  • Staging and Event Seating
