ABOUT THE GREAT STREETS CHALLENGE
“Our streets belong to the people who use them every day, and the Great Streets Challenge empowers Angelenos to reimagine public spaces in their own neighborhoods. These grants will allow community groups to bring a vision to life — transforming streets across Los Angeles into vibrant, walkable spaces that reflect the unique character of their communities.”
-Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
The Great Streets Challenge is a program of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Great Streets Initiative, in partnership with the Departments of City Planning and Transportation, 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.
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.
The 2016 winners will receive outreach funding and professional technical assistance from a team of consultants with expertise in urban planning, economic development and cultural activation. The community partners will lead discussions about priorities and values. The consultant team and City will provide expertise and resources to guide projects to implementation.
