Purposeful Aging Los Angeles Survey

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

As you may know, the older adult population (65 years and above) in the Los Angeles region will double between 2010 and 2030, from approximately 1.1 million to more than 2.2 million people. To prepare our region for this dramatic demographic shift, the County and City of Los Angeles launched Purposeful Aging Los Angeles (PALA), a landmark initiative that unites public and private resources, ideas and strategies.

The Los Angeles Department of Aging's goal is to change the future of aging in the Los Angeles Region by creating an area that is more age friendly, allowing people to age in place and in the community. You can help us to do that by taking the PALA Survey here. The survey is available in 10 languages, takes about 20 minutes to complete, and can be filled out by anyone 18 years of age or older who resides in the County or City of Los Angeles. Do your part as an Angelino and take the survey today!

MyFig Project Updates

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

The MyFig project continues with progress in installing the five bus platforms on Figueroa between Jefferson and Exposition, which are nearly complete– with a few finishing touches and transit shelters expected to be completed this month, August. Be on the lookout for new traffic signal poles going in along Figueroa in the next few weeks. These poles will include new bike signal heads for the protected bike lanes along MyFig, similar to the ones found on Los Angeles Street.

LADOT thanks you for your patience while we work to make Figueroa better, safer, and more enjoyable for everyone using the street. During MyFig construction, Fig out a different way to go! Try biking, transit, or an alternate route.
