Enhancing the Experience of DTLA for Employees, Residents and Visitors
We support a Downtown that is welcoming to all, including families, singles and retirees. To attract and retain a wide range of residents and create a world-class Downtown, CCA will advocate for increased healthcare and school options, greater access to green space and more innovative public art. CCA will seek changes in suburban regulations that limit the creation of new schools in Downtown. We will promote public art and green space by partnering with the development community to ensure impact fees are used effectively.
CCA recognizes that access to transit is an important asset for DTLA, and we will work to enhance the connections between and among Downtown neighborhoods by seeking improvements in pedestrian, bicycle and transit connectivity. We will leverage Measure M and other state and regional funding sources to support investments that help ease traffic throughout major job centers, including Downtown.
Walkability, recreation and access to culture and entertainment are key factors when deciding where to live. Growth industries, like tech and new media, will locate in areas where their employees want to live. Downtown has the potential to be the hub for this kind of activity, especially with the many strong institutions already in DTLA, including SCI-ARC, FIDM, USC, UCLA, LA Trade Tech and Loyola Law School. CCA will build on these strengths through marketing and programming. We will become the go-to source for information regarding DTLA.
