Here Comes the LA Streetcar!

In December 2012, the Downtown Los Angeles community voted to approve a Community Facilities District (CFD) to provide matching funds to finance the proposed LA Streetcar Project.  The Streetcar will link the Civic Center to the Historic Core along Broadway and the LA Live Entertainment District. The project’s goal is to help transform Downtown into a lively live, work, and play destination.

  • How was the campaign orchestrated?
  • What are the benefits of the Streetcar to the new Downtown?
  • What can other communities learn from the CFD’s success?
