Improving Sixth District Streets & Sidewalks

after_sidewalk_photo.jpgMy team has been busy at work making the streets and sidewalks in Council District Six safer – and flatter. We’re resurfacing streets, and replacing torn-up sidewalks. Previously, I announced my work with the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) to replace damaged sidewalks throughout the district using discretionary funding – and I’m pleased to announce that we’re wrapping up work on the first phase of that project, and preparing to move on to other communities like Van Nuys, Lake Balboa, and Sun Valley in the near future. Already, working with LANI, we’ve replaced 7,471 square feet of sidewalks and 525 linear feet of curb in the Sixth Council District this year alone!

Additionally, we’re working with the Bureau of Street Services on getting some of our most problem streets resurfaced. In the last month, we’ve seen street paving work done on Strathern Street, Natick Ave, and Cedros Ave. To date, the Bureau of Street Services has repaved over 40 lane miles of streets in Council District Six!
