Investing in Communities


Housing, Parks and Transportation Throughout Second District

Over the past six years, approximately $4-billion has been invested in more than 160 projects throughout communities in the Second District. An estimated 40,000 jobs will be generated as a result of these investments.

Reaching as far north as Koreatown, south to Carson, west to Playa del Rey and east to Lynwood, service centers and libraries, affordable housing units, parks, paths and open spaces, transportation and medical facilities have been improved or newly built.

“Our residents deserve to have a good quality of life,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. “It has been my focus to bring more housing, libraries, walking trails, transportation hubs and medical facilities to our district. Communities thrive when residents have access to a decent home, a good job, reliable transportation and safe and clean parks.”

This interactive timeline allows viewers to search for projects from 2008 to 2019 and to watch as the map populates with projects over time. In addition, users can search projects by type such as transportation and affordable housing. The map will zoom to any selected address as well and reveal a project’s description, completion year, approximate budget and address.
