For many years, residents surrounding Slauson Ave (from La Brea to Angeles Vista) have passionately argued that Slauson Avenue should be upgraded to reflect the purchasing power and stature of the surrounding communities. On October 4th, over 125 residents from View Park, Ladera and the Windsor Hills communities joined Supervisor Ridley-Thomas at the Junior Blind to discuss the steps necessary to work towards real revitalization.
The evening began with a presentation on “town centers” and the steps that were feasible and necessary to make the Slauson Corridor into a town center. Corde Carillo, Director of Economic Redevelopment for the Community Development Commission (CDC) followed with an update on the work completed by the CDC.
The night ended with a review of the eight next steps – which ranged from “community branding” to “public investment” to “commercial redevelopment” and the organization of 3 taskforces to ensure follow-through.
