Cedillo to Break Ground on Hoover Triangle Project
Transforming a transportation hub in the University Park Community in CD1

Los Angeles—Councilmember Gil Cedillo will break ground on the Hoover Triangle transportation hub project. The project evolved from residents and businesses advocating for irrigation repairs in January 2014. They asked for us to make the triangle green and provide lighting and benches for transit riders.

Working with the Bureau of street Services, Councilmember Cedillo secured $200,000, and then and an additional $250,000 from the Housing and Community Investment Department’s Neighborhood Improvement Fund (NIF) Program in June 2015. In late Spring 2015, a series of community conceptual design workshops were conducted by a student team from USC’s School of Architecture, which resulted in the underlying conceptual design for the Hoover Triangle Plaza. The project elements will include historic security/pedestrian lighting at the bus stops and within the plaza, a multi-use performance area, benches, trash receptacles, drought tolerant landscaping, street trees and trees within the plaza, new sidewalks and ADA compliant curb ramps, outdoor tables/seating for both adults and children, bike racks, colored concrete paving.

An additional $125,000 of funding will be allocated from Council District 1 to cover the overall budget of the beautification and security enhancements of the Hoover Triangle Plaza thereby bringing the total project funding to $575,000. The project will be completed by July 2017.
