Echo Park town hall with Caltrans/Metro on 2 Freeway Terminus

On Thursday, September 4, the Echo Park Improvement Association Town Hall will feature representatives from Caltrans (along with Metro) to present a status update on the 2 Freeway Terminus project.

50 years ago, residents kept the freeway from expanding to the 101 freeway through Echo Park. Now that there are more and more cars on the road, the city is hoping to improve traffic flow on the increasingly congested 2 Freeway as it transitions into Glendale Boulevard. Residents and governing bodies haven’t always agreed on the direction of the project, however Metro adopted plans in contrast to resident input and concerns. At the next meeting, we’ll have an opportunity to get updates and ask questions on the project.

Caltrans is in the final design phases of the project, and intend to complete the design this summer and go to bid later this year. One of the issues that will be discussed is new street lighting from Allesandro to Branden Street, which has to be approved by adjacent property owners in a formal vote.

Metro has additional information on their website, click here.

This is an important opportunity to learn more about the project. Bring your neighbors, friends, and roommates to the meeting on Thursday, September 4 at 7:00 pm, in Williams Hall at Barlow Hospital.Print

 

Special meeting: 27 unit development on 1313 Sunset Blvd

Please come an see the presentation of a new 27 Unit Residential Development at 1313 Sunset Boulevard. The developer will present the project. Community members will be invited to provide input.

PLEASE NOTE: The project is being developed conforming to existing zoning codes and is therefore by right. This means that the developer is not obligated to present the project to the community, but has graciously agreed to do so. The developer is not obligated to take action on any input, but is open to hearing thoughts from community members.

The EPIA Neighborhood Issues Committee encourages you to come out and participate.

All are welcome! Bring yourself, your neighbors, your input, and join us at Barlow Hospital, located at 2000 Stadium Way, in the library.
