The Los Angeles Centers Concept After 50:
Then, Now & Beyond
Sponsored by the Los Angeles Region Planning History Group
At the beautiful Huntington Library in San Marino
In 1974, the Los Angeles City Council adopted the iconic Los Angeles Centers Concept as the blueprint for the long- range development of Los Angeles.
Our upcoming colloquium will explore why the Centers Concept was needed, how it was adopted, and what the legacy is of this 50-year-old vision for the second largest city in the nation. How did the Centers Concept re-shape Los Angeles in the decades that followed, and in what ways were the Concept’s inspirations not fully realized?
Given today’s urban needs including an expanding transit network and pressures for development, our panel of experts will discuss the continuing relevance of the Centers Concept in the future planning of the City of Los Angeles.
Please join us as we reassess this iconic plan in the history of Los Angeles Planning. Come join us! Register now at www.larphg.org
