Streetscape Plan – West Hollywood Design District
The West Hollywood Design District is excited to begin the second phase of the Streetscape Plan…our district makeover!
The plan was adopted by City Council in summer 2013, and developed with the help of a consultant team and community working group. During plan adoption, City Council requested that the public gathering spaces identified in the Master Plan be further developed through a community design process. This summer, the City will begin phase 2 of the project, hosting three community workshops to help finalize the vision for new public spaces in the West Hollywood Design District.
“West Hollywood Design District will be a seamless contemporary public space designed to allow visitors and residents to move easily within the district by foot, by bicycle, in their cars, or by transit.” – Committee Member
