We are excited to announce that TRUST South LA is partnering with Community Coalition, the LA Neighborhood Land Trust, and First 5 LA to bring the Link initiative to South LA.
Link is an exciting pilot program that is designed to create a model or template so that residents can more easily design and advocate for parks in their local communities. The program “links” residents with organizations that help facilitate the community engagement and park planning process who then help “link” residents to government officials who can help secure funding for the construction of these community-designed parks.
So far, Link has helped create or renew parks in El Monte, Panorama City, Cudahy, and Bell. Now, it’s our turn — Link is designing and pushing for a new park in First5LA’s Broadway/Manchester Best Start Community. But to make this successful, we need you! Please give us your input through this survey and join our very first Community Planning Meeting on Thursday, March 10 from 6-730pm.
