Join Councilmember Curren Price, The Trust for Public Land and LA Sanitation (LASAN) for another community meeting on the Central Quincy Green Alleys Network on March 11 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. or March 13 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. via zoom.
This project transforms underutilized alleyways in District 9 into vibrant, green alleys where children and families can safely walk or bike to schools, local businesses and parks. Residents are encouraged to attend one of two scheduled virtual community meetings in March to learn about the upcoming Central Quincy Green Alley networks projects (see flyers here).
The Central-Jefferson and Quincy Jones Green Alley projects will renovate 10 alley segments. The Avalon Green Alley network was the first demonstration project, which renovated six alley segments in District 9.
Green alleys provide multiple benefits, including collecting rainwater to recharge the aquifer, contributing to urban cooling and new public art and street tree plantings. They also create a safe passageway and connectivity between various key destinations in the area.
