Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend the hearing yesterday! The Mobility Plan was approved to move forward after much discussion and after 57 people gave their public comment. The discussion revolved around advancing equity and historically disinvested communities in the implementation of the Plan and making amendments to some of the network concept maps included in Chapter 6 of the Plan. Overall, Councilmembers emphasized and supported the balanced and holistic approach that the Mobility Plan 2035 takes on long range transportation planning for the City. General Manager of LADOT, Seleta Reynolds, spoke on how the Mobility Plan will help the City better position itself to go after federal and state transportation funding sources.
The Plan will go to the full City Council on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at City Hall, room 340. The meeting will start at 10am and the Mobility Plan will be heard depending on agenda order. Download the agenda when it’s released here.
