Mayor Garcetti Announces First 15 “Great Streets”

It’s a pretty exciting week here at City Hall! After wrapping up a successful weekend of Hack for LA and TechLA events, Mayor Garcetti announced the first 15 streets to get the Great Streets treatment.

Great Streets was Mayor Garcetti’s first executive directive, establishing a working group with over nine city departments that will target 40 of LA’s more neglected, pedestrian- and bike-unfriendly streets and make them into lively and walkable corridors that attract businesses and serve as neighborhood centers.

As promised, this first round contains one street from each council district. Here’s the run-down:

  • District 1: North Figueroa Street between Avenue 50 and Avenue 60

  • District 2: Lankershim Boulevard between Chandler and Victory boulevards

  • District 3: Sherman Way between Wilbur and Lindley avenues

  • District 4: Western Avenue between Melrose Avenue and 3rd Street

  • District 5: Westwood Boulevard between Le Conte Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard

  • District 6: Van Nuys Boulevard between Victory Boulevard and Oxnard Street

  • District 7: Van Nuys Boulevard between Laurel Canyon Boulevard and San Fernando Road

  • District 8: Crenshaw Boulevard between 78th Street and Florence Avenue

  • District 9: Central Avenue between MLK Boulevard and Vernon Avenue

  • District 10: Pico Boulevard between Hauser Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue

  • District 11: Venice Boulevard between Beethoven Street and Inglewood Boulevard

  • District 12: Reseda Boulevard between Plummer Street and Parthenia Avenue

  • District 13: Hollywood Boulevard between La Brea Avenue & Gower Street
