Field Report: APA Conference Panel on Jordan Downs

I will be on a panel tomorrow talking about Global Green's involvement with Jordan Downs, a 100-acre public housing redevelopment project in Watts (Los Angeles), during the American Planning Association's National Conference. Discussion points for the panel:

  • The urban village that the Specific Plan will set the bar high for future public housing redevelopment projects and for development in the Watts community at large
  • Global Green's involvement, using LEED-ND, ensured that bike lanes will be developed on Century Blvd., the major street reconfiguration for the project
  • The next steps for Global Green in preparing and submitting for LEED-ND Stage 2 certification of the Specific Plan at the Silver level, once the Plan is adopted by City Council
