About the Great Streets Challenge

The Great Streets Challenge is a program of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Great Streets Initiative to envision, collaborate on, and build transformative street infrastructure projects. The Great Streets Challenge aims to:

  • Build strong partnerships between communities and the City of Los Angeles.

  • Empower communities to develop a vision to transform their corridors.

  • Design streets with a community’s vision of how to improve our neighborhoods for all people.

  • Implement projects that transform our streets into safe, accessible, and vibrant public spaces in alignment with adopted City policies.

We created a specialized Great Streets Mapping Tool to help applicants answer the 2019 application questions. Many of our partners found the map helpful on a variety of other projects. Feel free to email us at greatstreets@lacity.org if you'd like more information about the data.
