BEVERLY HILLS, CA — As plans are made for two new Metro Purple Line Extension stations, city officials are offering residents the chance to have input on a streetscape plan and design standards for Wilshire and La Cienega boulevards in Beverly Hills.
The city will host two virtual workshops next week during which ideas will be shared on the designs for the area that are based on public input, city officials announced Friday. The two workshops will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 14 when streetscape design and amenities for the project will be discussed and from 4-6 p.m. on Oct. 15 to discuss the mobility hub.
City officials announced last week that work is expected to be completed on the project sometime after the first quarter of 2021.
According to a video posted to the Connect Beverly Hills website, the streetscape design plan calls for new bus shelters, a crosswalk, bike parking and other amenities to create safer space for residents and visitors alike when the new Metro stations are added.
During the workshops, residents will have the opportunity to provide insight on what they would like to see added to the streetscape. When the plan is completed, city officials will provide a detailed design plan to the city’s capital improvement program, Metro and private developments in incorporate the streetscape additions into the construction plan.
