Greening the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles

Winning idea by Arts District Project
Greening the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles

The Idea

:

Our community intends to plant trees and do tree care along one of the main streets running through our neighborhood, increasing much needed canopy cover. In addition, we are planning on planting native plants and fruit trees in a narrow parkway strip next to a new market coming soon.

Your Team

Our team is made up of property owners, residents and business owners ready and willing to volunteer for the planning, planting and maintenance of the new street trees and native plants.

The Community

:

Our Arts District community has been involved in organized design charrettes, planning for the future of our landscape. The results were an overwhelming desire to create more healthy green spaces.

The Need

:

The Arts District is an industrial area of downtown Los Angeles greatly in need of trees and green space. This project will be a wonderful beginning to our future vision.

Location

:

The market owner has granted us permission to plant. We need to acquire street tree permits.

Timing

:

We can begin working on the street trees immediately. Market parkway would be spring 2013.

We have more kids in this concrete jungle neighborhood than a few years ago. Having more trees here really provides what human and any other living things need -clean air, shade, cooler temperature, friendly neighborhoods even if it's surrounded by warehouses.... PLEASE HELP OUR NEIGHBORHOOD GROW!

This will mean a lot to a community with almost no green. Please help us change just a little bit of our gray to green! Thanks for your support!

Definitely plant but plant indigenous vegetation...these trees should be sustainable. The Theodore Payne Foundation has the best program to consult for this.
