La Brea Streetscape Master Plan

La Brea Streetscape Master Plan

Ratings: (0)|Views: 145|Likes:
Published by Matt Baume
The Santa Monica Boulevard Master Plan was adopted
in 1999 with the intent of creating a beautiful, vibrant “Main Street” that would reflect the community’s identity and would connect and unify West Hollywood from its eastern boundary at La Brea Avenue to its western boundary at Doheny Drive, with distinctive gateways at both ends. Construction of the initial improvements was completed in 2001, including widened sidewalks with corner curb extensions, irrigated street trees in parkways or gap-graded (“structural”), pedestrian street lights and landscaped medians. Bus shelters and news rack corrals were added a few years later.
As the City’s eastern gateway and with its connection to Santa Monica Boulevard, La Brea Avenue provides the opportunity to extend the community’s vision of a vibrant, unified“Main Street” north to Fountain Avenue and south to Romaine Avenue and to contribute to a distinctive eastern gateway. The La Brea Avenue Master Plan identifies streetscape improvements, complementary to those on Santa Monica Boulevard, which, together with high-quality development projects, will implement the community’s vision.
The master plan was prepared with input from the Public Facilities Commission and Eastside Redevelopment Project Area PAC.
The master plan includes: 1) improvements to be made by the City with grant funding, which will be available starting in Fiscal July 2011 and 2) other improvements to be made within the public right-of-way (PROW) adjacent to and in conjunction with individual development projects or using other funding sources.
