The vision for South Los Angeles is to build beautiful, safe, and thriving neighborhoods that provide existing residents with quality housing, good jobs, vibrant economic corridors, accessible transportation systems, and a place where residents can reach their highest potential.

Broadway is a major neighborhood corridor in South Los Angeles with a rich history as a vibrant and bustling community shopping boulevard. Presently, Broadway is a disinvested street with high rates of traffic deaths and serious injuries. Broadway is home to schools, community services, and senior homes. Residents deserve to have a beautiful street that allows them to navigate safely. Decades of disinvestment may have dimmed its vibrancy, however we know that its future is bright.

Community Driven Design

In 2017, the community shared a vision to improve Broadway between Manchester and Century. Ideas to make Broadway safer and pleasant for everyone including residents, students, business owners, and patrons, and churchgoers included rethinking the median. Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson is launching a community-based streetscape design effort for Broadway, to increase public investment and create a safer and vibrant street for all residents. The project will be on Broadway from Manchester Boulevard to Imperial Highway. Broadway is a large street with the potential to be transformed into an active street with safe transportation and recreational space. These changes are already underway and residents will continue to have opportunities to shape this project.

Council District 8 will continue to facilitate a community-driven process to create design options for Broadway. If you walk, drive, shop, live, and/or access services along Broadway, you can contribute a unique and essential perspective to create a design that serves all residents. You are the experts and we need your input to make this a successful project!
