During the months of June and July, the Westside Planning Team conducted a Community Plan Workshop in each plan area : West Los Angeles, Palms-Mar Vista-Del Rey, Westchester-Playa del Rey, and Venice. These workshops brought residents and planners together to review selections of land use ideas based upon input received from community stakeholders over the past year. During these workshops, we had the opportunity to confirm whether we accurately captured community concerns and land use considerations. We also received additional feedback. Thank you to everyone who attended!
All materials from each workshop can be found under the “Materials” tab of our website.
Please continue to check out the “Events” tab on our website to stay updated on all future outreach events. We will be seeing you again very soon!
