STREET VENDORS AND PUBLIC SPACE

Pueblo partnered with the East LA Community Corporation to co-design merchandise and pedestrian pathway spaces with street vendors. Police have been prohibiting street vending on the sidewalk and have expressed they are in the way of pedestrians. We co-designed three layouts to enable street vendors to reclaim space which meet the priorities of the street vendors, the needs of pedestrians, and adhered to sidewalk design standards and requirements. Project area: Alvarado Street between 7th Street and Wilshire Boulevard and the Westlake/MacArthur Park Metro Station Plaza
