The city of West Hollywood is planning two virtual community workshops on Thursday, Aug. 25, at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 27, at 9:30 a.m. to seek community input on the Willoughby, Kings, Vista/Gardner Greenway Project.
The workshops will be led by project partners Here LA, which will provide information about the pilot project traffic calming strategies installed along Willoughby Avenue in April, and discuss the future vision of the streetscape for the Willoughby, Kings, Vista/Gardner Greenway Project. The city seeks community’s input about a streetscape plan as the project progresses into the final stages and implementation.
The pilot phase of the Willoughby, Kings, Vista/Gardner Greenway Project began in April 2022 and consists of temporary traffic improvements such as a traffic diverter at Ogden/Willoughby, corner curb extensions at Spaulding/Willoughby and a mini-roundabout at Curson/Willoughby. The traffic calming measures were installed temporarily to model the impacts of street designs, which intend to slow or divert traffic to make the residential corridor safer. Barriers were later installed to block motorists from driving around a traffic diverter at Ogden/Willoughby and continuing eastbound on Willoughby Avenue.
The city is providing ways to provide feedback via text message, an app with QR codes and a web submission form for individuals unable to attend the virtual workshops.
