EASTSIDE COMMUNITY PLAN IN WEST HOLLYWOOD KICKS OFF!

October 02, 2015

Meléndrez’s urban design team recently joined Raimi Associates and team to kick off the Eastside Community Plan in West Hollywood. The Plan establishes a vision and action items for the eastern end of West Hollywood, and lays the ground work for future collaboration between the City and community. 

Meléndrez’s will be performing analysis of public spaces and will look at ways to utilize roadways and public rights-of-way to provide gathering areas, activity centers, and refuge.   The process includes creative outreach with the Working Group and community at large.

The City has already been working with the Eastside Working Group, a 15 member group comprised of residents, since early 2014. The Plan will address key topics identified by the group, the former Eastside Task Force and the City – economic development, mobility, urban design/community character, public spaces, and housing. Additional topics also include public events, sustainability, public safety, and community services.
