At the Urban Land Institute’s Transit Oriented Los Angeles Summit on October 10, 2013, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced his first initiative as Mayor: The Great Streets Initiative.
It was during this speech that I realized, the Mayor is a straight-up Planner! Great news in my book. Enjoy (most of) the speech here. Technical imperfections lost a couple minutes but you’ll get the idea. Introduced by David Waite, Chair of ULI LA.
