Kicking off the “Share” phase of the Southeast Valley Community Plans Update, our team visited several Neighborhood Council land use committees during June and July. These meetings were opportunities for us to share neighborhood-specific feedback we’ve gathered, provide an update on our work program and gather further input that will inform the initial concepts for the new plans.
At each committee meeting, planning staff presented a packet of information that highlighted the outreach we conducted so far and a summary of feedback specific to individual communities in the Southeast Valley. Check out the link below to review the materials from these meetings!
Thanks to the Neighborhood Councils for making time to talk about community priorities. We look forward to continued discussions about the future of the Southeast Valley!
The Southeast Valley Community Plan Update team has been working hard to update the community plans in the Southeast Valley for the first time in 20 years! We are finally ready to present our proposed ideas and guiding principles for the three plan areas based on what we’ve heard from local stakeholders over the last ten months and our own technical analysis. Join us at our concept workshops this summer to see what we have come up with and share your thoughts on our initial thinking.
The workshops will be open house style events, so feel free to stop by for an hour or two to see what is happening in your communities of interest and how you can help shape the future of those neighborhoods. Staff from all three plan areas will be at all four workshops, so if you are unable to make one event, the same materials will be available at another . We look forward to seeing you soon! Check out the flyer below for dates and locations.
June 22 was a busy day for the Southeast Valley team! During outreach activities at Studio City’s Totally Awesome Summer Kickoff Event and Valley Pride in Van Nuys, we talked to stakeholders about the Community Plan update and our upcoming concepts workshops. The Totally Awesome Summer Kickoff at Moorpark Park was a family-friendly event hosted by the Studio City Neighborhood Council with games, inflatable jumpers, piñatas, and catering from In-N-Out.
Later in the day we celebrated family love and acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community and talked to many stakeholders who want to get involved in the Community Plan Update! Hosted by Council District 6, the event was held at the Van Nuys Civic Center, drawing attendees from all over LA and beyond with live music, food trucks, interactive art and resources.
The topics we heard about most frequently from stakeholders at both events included:
We really appreciate being able to interact with people from throughout the Southeast Valley and are especially grateful to the Studio City Neighborhood Council and Council District 6 for the opportunity to do so!
