SLT Community Vision 2013
Starting in 2012, the Little Tokyo community undertook a visioning project recognizing that this over 130-year old neighborhood faces a crossroads to a new future. The new Little Tokyo/Arts District Regional Connector station will be key to this future, bringing attention and new life as it is expected to become one of the busiest transit stations in Los Angeles County.
We now have a vision for sustainable development that brings us into the future. It is a vision to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote the local economy, address social equity and access for all incomes and backgrounds, and preserve this neighborhood’s unique Japanese American cultural heritage. Our goal was to establish a grass-roots vision grounded in and highlighting the cultural and historical assets of this resilient neighborhood.
