Open Partner Meeting on March 5, 2015

On March 5th Investing in Place hosted its first open partner meeting in downtown Los Angeles at the beautiful Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC).  Over 80 partners joined in discussion on supporting a more walkable, bikeable and transit rich Los Angeles County (agenda).

Investing in Place is focusing on Metro’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), to effect change in policy priorities for future investments through 2050. The LRTP update is proceeding in parallel with the formulation of a potential ballot measure to levy an additional half-cent sales tax for transportation, yielding up to tens of billions in new public funds over 45 years for new projects. The LRTP update is still missing a set of performance measures to guide project selection and prioritization.
