We’ve Got LA’s Number: An Inventory of Los Angeles Streets, Sidewalks, and Everything in Between

To gain a big-picture understanding of the scope of what the City of LA is charged with managing and maintaining, Investing in Place has created and published an inventory of the elements within the public right-of-way in Los Angeles. A comprehensive, one-stop inventory of City-managed assets did not exist before this.

A complete inventory should encompass at least two things:

1. raw numbers of what the City owns (miles of streets and sidewalks, plus all the essentials that make that space usable); and

2. the condition of those assets. This inventory tackles No. 1.

This is the first of its kind for Los Angeles, and it will aid policymakers and the public to truly understand the scope of LA public infrastructure.
