The second community meeting for the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Master Plan took place on October 12, 2011 at Victoria Park in Carson. The County has invested nearly $3 Million to develop a long-term comprehensive master plan to more strategically use the 72-acre campus to provide high quality patient health care services, research, teaching and economic development opportunities. The master planning process provides an opportunity to think critically about the needs of patients, medical staff, community members and businesses and develop a plan for a new center that is reflective of those needs.
The second community meeting focused on a review of the comments provided at the first community meeting in June 2011 and a review of the research collected to date by consultants Perkins + Will. Most notably, community comments to date have focused on the importance of health and wellness services on the campus including flexible clinic hours for patients, fitness programs, and space for exercise and community use. Additionally, comments also emphasize the need for local job opportunities and the shortage of parking on the campus.
Following the presentation, community members provided further comments on boards displayed around the room. The materials shared at the community meeting are available below:
Community input is critically important to the success of the master planning process.
