Stakeholder Forum

The Little Tokyo Community Council and Little Tokyo Service Center are collaborating with a range of community and environmental advocates to help create green, inclusive revitalization in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles.  In partnership with a professional design, engineering, and economic consulting team, we want to hear your thoughts as community stakeholders to envision and create state of the art plans for properties around the planned Regional Connector station that will advance the goal of sustainable neighborhood revitalization and cultural preservation.  With your help and input, the sustainable redevelopment of these sites will have a catalytic effect on the rest of the neighborhood. 

Please join us for a multi-day community forum to generate our vision for a truly sustainable Little Tokyo and to identify strategies that promote our environmental, economic, community and cultural values and aspirations.  At the forum, there will be a variety of interactive activities and educational tables to gather community input, including specific conversations and listening stations to learn more about different parts of the community.  There will also be an opportunity to learn about the LEED for Neighborhood Development sustainability framework, and how that can help inform our environmental vision and goals.
