Motor Avenue Streetscape Plan

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning is developing a streetscape plan for Motor Avenue in Palms (between I-10 and Washington Blvd.) and seeks public input on preliminary concepts for the preliminary draft. The streetscape plan seeks to:

  • Build community identity
  • Encourage walking, biking and transit use
  • Support local businesses
  • Implement sustainable practices

The purpose of the streetscape plans is to document the community’s vision for how the street looks and functions, while also providing a basis for pursuing related funding opportunities for future implementation. The plans identify a consistent palette of streetscape amenities such as street benches, trash receptacles, street lighting, trees and other unique community identifiers for each of the five segments. The plans also define maintenance responsibilities for the city, businesses, and community partners.

To learn more about the Motor Avenue Streetscape Plan check out the Powerpoint or rendering below or visit City Planning staff who will be at Motor Ave. Farmers Market on Sunday, November 2 between 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

You can also email your feedback regarding the Motor Avenue Streetscape Plan to Steven Katigbak at steven.katigbak@lacity.org
