“Garcetti gave Clinton credit for inspiring Los Angeles, under former Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, to convert 144,000 street lamps to LED bulbs, reducing energy costs and cutting carbon emissions. The city now plans to install solar panels and Wi-Fi hot spots on the street lamps, Garcetti said.”

Cesar Chavez Avenue in Boyle Heights is one of Los Angeles’ most active commercial corridors. Originally served by the Red Car system, Cesar Chavez has early 1900s tree-lined blocks of neighborhood-oriented shops, restaurants, and services. Great Streets seeks to strengthen the linkages between Cesar Chavez and the nearby Gold Line while improving the pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the area, proving residents better options for getting to and from the corridor.

On July 24th, Mayor Garcetti led his first meeting as Chair of the MTA Board of Directors.  Mayor Garcetti is focused on reducing traffic by building a regional transportation system that utilizes trains, buses, bikes, and walkable communities to get everyone “door-to-door” as easily as possible. He plans to bring innovation, technology, and accountability to MTA so it can serve customers better and more efficiently while making sure its major construction projects get done on time and on budget.
