An effort is underway to improve the area around 10 stations along the Blue and Green lines in South Los Angeles. What’s to improve? Pedestrian access, better connecting the stations to neighborhoods, parking and possible development — to name just a few.
The effort to draw up plans for the “transit oriented districts” is part of Project Renew and is being conducted by the nonprofit Community Health Councils, Los Angeles County and the city of Los Angeles. Three public workshops are behind this month to discuss the plans — on March 10, 17 and 22.
The first of the meetings is this Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Los Angeles Trace Tech College, Room T.E. 101, 400 W. Washington Boulevard. The Blue Line’s Grand, San Pedro and Washington stations will be discussed.
For more info on the other meetings and the overall TOD plan, please check out the Project Renew website.

More over parking spaces at the Norwalk Station is needed. There is no parking after 9 a.m. Also, there should be more affordable housing near the stations.
More bicycle racks at each station would be nice. We need to get in the healthier habit of biking to the rail station instead of driving to them. Plus, you can fit a lot more bicycles than cars in the same parking space.
