WeHo City is inviting residents, businesses, and stakeholders to provide public input on the Eastside Community Priorities Plan. Adopted by the City Council in October 2017, the plan identifies and prioritizes improvements to be implemented in the Eastside neighborhood of the City (east of N. Hayworth Avenue) during the next few years.
The Eastside Community Priorities Plan is a community priorities document with specific policy recommendations in the following topic areas: Urban Design; Economic Development; Housing; Mobility; Arts and Events; Sustainability and Public Spaces; and Public Safety. The Eastside Community Priorities Plan was awarded the American Planning Association Los Angeles Neighborhood Planning award in 2018. The Plan has a 10-year timeframe. The implementation of its goals and policies is a collective effort by staff across all City departments.
Since adopting the plan in 2017, more than 60 percent of the plan recommendations have been completed, are ongoing, or are in progress. Others are on hold due to challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the recently completed and ongoing items include: improving pedestrian safety on Fountain Avenue; expanding the Cityline free shuttle program; advocating for Metro rail expansion into the City; and installing public art at Plummer Park.
The City is asking for public input about priorities as work continues in implementing the remaining recommendations. Visit bit.ly/weho-east to learn more about the plan and progress. Please provide feedback no later than Wednesday, May 19, 2021, about priorities for the remaining recommendations.
The City of West Hollywood will conduct a virtual Eastside community update meeting, to be scheduled in Summer 2021. It will give members of the public an opportunity to receive updates from the City on projects and initiatives impacting the community and provide feedback on issues or concerns of Eastside residents. The City will post meeting details on its City calendar when a date has been confirmed. The City will also engage with neighborhood groups and other community groups to promote the community meeting and encourage attendance.
