Since September of 2008, the Neighborhood Services Division within Community and Human Development has been developing El Segundo Barrio Revitalization Plan and Strategy with the assistance of Neighborhood residents, community stakeholders, neighborhood serving businesses and the Southside Neighborhood Association.
The planning process has been established by an evidence based model which allowed residents in the neighborhood to identify issues and concerns that address the physical appearance of the neighborhood, the need to increase affordable housing, stronger safety and security through community policing through law enforcement, the need to increase effective social services, develop and promote educational opportunities and workforce needs for the residents living in the neighborhood.
The Neighborhood Services staff will be distributing the Segundo Barrio Revitalization Plan and Strategy Draft on Monday, August 24 from 5:00p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Armijo Recreation Center located at 700 Seventh Street.
