“Great Streets, Great Neighborhood” Activity Kit
To ensure participation from as many Angelenos as possible, this summer we sent an activity kit to over 100 neighborhood councils and organizations. This pen-and-paper outreach was meant to supplement the dialogue or our online town hall, and included a series of brief exercises to help you and your neighbors give input toward the development of the draft goals, objectives, policies, and programs of the Mobility Element, which will be presented later this fall for public review. Check out the toolkit materials here, and see a full list of who we mailed them to here.
LA/2B Challenge: Create an itinerary for your ideal car free day in LA
In June, we wrapped up our Create an itinerary for your ideal car free day in LA challenge through our partnership with GOOD/CORP. A big congratulations to Elizabeth Gallardo for winning the challenge! Read more about it here.
As one way of expanding the number and diversity of stakeholders we have introduced an on-line town hall through ideas.la2b.org. The first round of the town hall extended from November 7, 2011 – January 30, 2012 and provided an opportunity for community members to share thoughts and opinions about the streets of Los Angeles.
Our online town hall (ideas.la2b.org) will be going dark until mid-November, when we will reactivate the site with new conversations. Until then, follow our blog for updates on our next steps and presentations of the main issues that emerged from the ideas we’ve received.
While we are very excited about the new town hall format we still value the importance of face to face gatherings. We held our first round of Think Lab workshops on Saturday, February 25, 2012 and March 3, 2012. Find all of our workshop materials here.
