Upcoming CCA summit: future of DTLA growth and transit


By Steve Hymon, January 29, 2015

The Central City Association — which represents downtown Los Angeles businesses — is holding a half-day summit on Feb. 19 about growth in DTLA and the future of transit. The flier is below; you can register to attend here (it’s $125 for those who aren’t CCA members). Metro CEO Art Leahy and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti are both on the docket to speak.

It should be an interesting topic, given that DTLA is already the hub of the regional transit system with more projects on the way. The Regional Connector to link the Blue, Expo and Gold Lines is under construction, as are both the second phase of the Expo Line and the Purple Line Extension, both of which will link DTLA to Westside jobs and residents.
