Both Housing People and Walkable Streets Are Possible

After finding transitional housing for people living near the intersection of Glendale and Alessandro, CD 13 kicks off public beautification project.
After months of outreach and services to people experiencing homelessness at the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Alessandro Street, near the 2 Freeway on-ramp, CD 13 has successfully placed seven individuals into transitional housing. This week, the city broke ground at the location on a major $720,000 beautification project funded by CD 13. The project provides significant environmental benefits with nearly 500 drought-tolerant California native plants; repairs the natural slope and retaining wall to prevent further erosion; maintains and protects existing mature trees; and adds a new irrigation system.
CD 13 Councilmember O’Farrell notes that the project is an example of moving people indoors through consistent outreach and services and ensuring public spaces are safe, sustainable and livable for all Angelenos.
