These recommendations were developed from our convenings with elected officials, policy makers, public agencies, and community-based organizations across the Los Angeles region throughout this year. Through these engagements, Investing in Place and its partners have developed strategies to help Metro guide its proposed transportation investments. These strategies, reflected in our recommendations, prioritize enhancing public health and fostering more socially equitable outcomes – as well as robust and meaningful public participation process to support and inform this effort.
