Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl joined the Venice Boulevard Streetscape Improvement Association and the city Bureau of Street Services Tuesday, February 13th, to celebrate the progress of the median landscape project in Mar Vista.

In August, Rosendahl identified $100,000 for a revitalization project by the Venice Boulevard Streetscape Improvement Association to beautify Venice Boulevard between Walgrove Avenue and the San Diego Freeway (Interstate 405).

The beautification project consists of several components focused on revitalizing the busy corridor, including installing 22 decorative trash cans, trimming 154 trees, and beautifying the Venice Boulevard median.

With the cooperation of the Bureau of Street Services, the median project is near completion.

Rosendahl, who pledged as chair of the City Council Public Works Committee to be “Mr. Public Works” and focus on delivering and improving basic services to the 11th Council District, praised the median project.

“This beautification project is just one of many projects focused on building community pride and developing a sense of identity for our neighborhoods,” Rosendahl said. “The residents of our district deserve constituent services that will not only enhance the character of our communities but also improve the overall quality of life.”
