Following our community town hall regarding 6th Street Safety on October 21, my office released a public survey regarding proposed traffic safety improvement options for 6th Street between Fairfax and La Brea Avenues. After studying the area extensively with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, LAPD and LAFD, my office asked the community to voice their opinions on various traffic safety improvements. This survey closed on November 22. Today, we have the results of this survey to share.
Making a safer 6th Street between Fairfax and La Brea is my priority. That's why I've been studying the area with City departments to understand the cause of accidents there, and using facts and data to develop various possible solutions to make 6th Street safer for everyone. You can read my October 25 letter on the issue here.
I developed this survey to hear directly from residents who live, work and frequent this area of 6th Street. Workable solutions depend on the community, and before I moved forward on any proposal to improve safety on this stretch of 6th Street, it was imperative that the community had a chance to weigh in on the options.
The results are in. Thank you to everyone who took this survey for taking the time to improve your community and contributing to making our street safer.
