Big news for our Great Street
We won the city's Great Streets Challenge! Our submission, "Destination: Pico", was one of three "build" projects awarded (out of 28 applicants), which means the city will be funding up to half a million dollars in installed improvements on Pico.
What does this mean for our Great Street? In our application, we described what we've been hearing from you over the past year in our community meetings, surveys, and face-to-face conversations. You've told us, again and again, that you want Pico to be a destination for the community, a walkable and bikeable Great Street with vibrant public gathering spaces and thriving local businesses.
Over the next six months, we'll be leading an extensive outreach process to nail down the specific improvements we all want to see on Pico. We will work hard to involve as many of you as possible, so that together we can develop a vision for our Great Street that reflects the needs and desires of all the diverse elements of our community.
We are excited to be partnering with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and P.I.C.O. Neighborhood Council in our outreach efforts.
