NORTHRIDGE (CNS) — Mayor Eric Garcetti has officially announced the first 15 Los Angeles streets, which include those in the San Fernando Valley, that will undergo a makeover under his “Great Streets” urban renewal program.

The announcement was made while the mayor was in Northridge on Tuesday, June 3.

The mayor’s office chose one street in each of the 15 council districts to receive improvements aimed at making them more pedestrian-friendly and livable.

The thoroughfares range from the San Fernando Valley’s Van Nuys Boulevard, and from Venice Boulevard in Mar Vista to Cesar Chavez Street in Boyle Heights to San Pedro’s Gaffey Street. Angelenos soon can expect to see temporary additions at these street, such as plazas and parklets, Garcetti said.

The city eventually will put in long-term upgrades such as curbs lighting, trees and street furniture, he said.

Garcetti said his goal is to transform these "main streets'' into “dynamic and safe places to meet, to shop, to spend time with their families.”

“It’s about focusing on the basics — more cops where needed, business improvement districts to clean up our streets and sidewalks, and amenities like improved medians and pocket parks to restore neighborhoods and attract investment,” he said.

A team of City Hall staff, dubbed the “Great Streets Studio,” will do outreach and develop projects for the 15 streets, Garcetti said.


Los Angeles has 6,500 centerline miles of streets, more than any other place in the country, the mayor's office said.

These streets, which take up 13 percent of the city, are “our largest public asset,” according to Garcetti.

The city’s 2014-15 budget, which the mayor signed on June 2, allows for $800,000 to be used for Great Streets planning and outreach.

A few of the streets already have funding through grants or other projects already in the works, he said. His office also plans to work with individual council offices and stakeholders to get more funding.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
