Presenting LADOT's New Strategic Plan

LADOT is pleased to announce the release of the LADOT Strategic Plan Update 2021 - 2023, a comprehensive document that will guide and shape our department’s work over the next several years.

Since the launch of its 2018 Strategic Plan, LADOT accomplished 82 percent of the goals and actions by the end of 2020. For most of 2020, we focused on pandemic-related response programs that provided a critical lifeline to Angelenos. While this constrained our priorities outlined in the 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, we are proud of our measurable,…

Today, LADOT released our new Strategic Plan for 2021 - 2023! Like the Strategic Plan that preceded it, this document will guide our department's goals and operations for the next three years. Unlike that plan (and the one before that), this one came together during a time of profound disruption.

We thank the 82 members of our Strategic Plan Working Group, the 17 members of our Racial Equity Core Team, and nearly 300 other staff who provided input on plan development, especially in the midst of everything else we have asked our essential workers and staff to do.

LADOT's Commitment to Health and Safety

As our local communities continue to experience the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Los Angeles and LADOT request that residents and visitors observe all city and county health guidelines aimed at combating the spread of the virus. LADOT reminds Angelenos that while certain guidelines have been relaxed, hospitals operating at capacity continue to present an ongoing problem for affected individuals in Los Angeles County.

To provide support for the city’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts, LADOT continues to assist in…

Dodger Stadium to Convert to Vaccination Site

 

Earlier this week, the COVID-19 testing site located at Dodger Stadium ceased testing operations in order to convert to its new primary role as a coronavirus vaccination site. With a capacity to administer 12,000 vaccinations per day, the Dodger Stadium site is managed in part by LADOT, which operates traffic management at the stadium to facilitate proper vehicle ingress and egress. Last week, to address concerns from nearby residents regarding neighborhood traffic, LADOT reconfigured traffic lanes at the stadium to localize…
