Los Angeles Releases 20-Year Plan for Mobility
"This week the Los Angeles Department of City Planning released a revised version of the Mobility Plan 2035 [pdf], an aspirational, wide-ranging blueprint for getting around Los Angeles in the next 20 years," reports the staff at Curbed LA. The Los Angeles Department of City Planning has been working on the update for sevral years, and the current draft incorporates changes following a round of public hearings in March 2014.
According to Curbed LA, "[the major] goals of the plan include establishing a network of 'Complete Streets' that are accessible for both people and cars, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and solving the ever-vexing 'first-mile/last-mile' issue for getting people to and from all those transit stops already here and on the way."
The post goes on to describe the additional details of the updated version of the plan, including meter pricing, grade crossings, industrial street infrastructure, and bike racks on buses.
