LADOT is getting to work on a safer intersection! Part of the 4th Street Greenway Project corridor, the 4th & New Hampshire Mini-Roundabout is designed to calm traffic and improve connections and crossings for everyone, whether walking, biking, rolling or driving.
A test run was done early in the year. The results were great and met with good feedback from the community. Make sure you join the committee Transportation & Public Safety to get first insight into these projects.
As we all know Koreatown has the Purple & Red line going through our neighborhood. This has provided useful transportations for many years now. As some might know or will start to hear about, Metro is doing an extension that will reach Westwood from Downtown. This means our community can visit more areas in the Purple Line.
Metro is currently doing a community feedback for local neighbors of the area, stakeholders, & community members who would benefit from this extension. They are holding two events to ensure they get community feedback. Community Walk Audit & Community Roundtable. It’s important to participate as feedback can change the way the stations are finalized. Additionally, participating will get you a $50 gift card for attending both events.
Thursday, January 14th: 6 – 7 pm: Community Walk Audit Training Session (Option #1) Saturday, January 16th: 10 – 11 am: Community Walk Audit Training Session (Option #2) March: Community Roundtable

The Wilshire Center Koreatown Neighborhood Council elections are ongoing. Along with the other 99 NC elections, this is time for the community to sign up as a candidate or register to vote in the community held elections. We are hosting events and will be conducting outreach to ensure our community is represented and you get to meet the candidates. The election will determine the next board for the two year term.

Neighborhood Councils are the closest form of government to the people. They are advisory bodies, who advocate for their communities with City Hall on important issues like development, homelessness, and emergency preparedness. Neighborhood Councils are part of the Los Angeles City government, and have annual budgets funded by taxpayer dollars. Neighborhood Council board members are City officials who are elected by the members of their local communities, but they donate their time as volunteers. The Neighborhood Council system was established in 1999 as a way of ensuring that the City government remains responsive to the different needs and lifestyles of Los Angeles’ rich variety of communities. There are currently 99 Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles, each serving about 40,000 people.
Mayor Garcetti declared a state of local emergency March 4 for the City of Los Angeles to access state and federal funding to strengthen and support efforts to prepare our region and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
