After a year-long planning and design effort, Here LA is excited to announce that the Inglewood First/Last Mile Plan was adopted last night at the Metro Board meeting with a special shout out for the Plan from Inglewood Mayor James Butts. The Plan is a joint effort between Metro and the City of Inglewood and lays out first/last mile streetscape design improvements around five stations in and adjacent to the City. Here LA led a team of consultants for the Plan.

The Inglewood First/Last Mile Plan is LA County’s first first/last mile project that has received committed implementation funding from a City partner (City of Inglewood).

Volunteers Needed for a Walk Audit around Future Purple Line Stations

First / Last Mile planning for the Purple Line Extension has begun for the Wilshire/Rodeo, Century City/Constellation, Westwood/UCLA and VA Hospital rail stations. We invite you to participate in a Walk Audit, which is part of Metro’s First / Last Mile program to develop plans and implement strategies to ensure safe, accessible, and pleasant trips to and from transit for all riders. A Walk Audit is an in-the-field analysis of the streets surrounding a transit station.

Here LA will lead the walk audits on the days specified, training auditors in the field about best practices for auditors and how to use the mobile App that we helped to develop. We will take all of the information from the audits and compile results into a proposed set of streetscape projects and designs.

Hope you can join us!
