The public is invited to attend community open house meetings this month focusing on the next phase of the Westside Mobility Plan process.

The Westside Mobility Plan is a city of Los Angeles project to create a transportation blueprint for the Westside in regards to multimodal travel, north-south rail connections and parking solutions. The project includes a Livable Boulevards Study and will also update the Coastal Transportation Corridor Specific Plan and the West Los Angeles Transportation Specific Plan.

The community meetings will address the Westside Mobility and Rail Connectivity Study portion of the plan, which will look at potential transportation improvements and programs to enhance system capacity, reduce vehicle trips and miles traveled and improve rail and transit connectivity, according to the project team.

The public is invited to either of the identically formatted community meetings, scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 13 at the Oakwood Recreation Center, 767 California St., Venice; and 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 20 at the Westchester Municipal Building, 7166 Manchester Ave. Room 9, Westchester.

The meetings are intended to introduce this component of the project to the community, to present the objectives of the study and an overview of existing and future conditions, and to solicit input on issues and solutions affecting travelers on the Westside. An update on the parking study will also be provided.

The parking portion of the Westside Mobility Plan began earlier this year to evaluate parking deficiencies on the Westside in order to develop solutions such as additional parking, parking pricing and management strategies.

The meetings are designed to allow visitors to attend at their leisure. Stations will be established throughout the room to allow participants to have questions answered on specific subjects. A short project presentation will be presented several times over the course of the evening.
