Commerce Avenue Village Plan
CLIENT:Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council
Johnson Favaro and Civic Enterprise Associates were hired by the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council and funded by the Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment to collaborate with the Sunland Tujunga community in the creation of a comprehensive long term vision for the Commerce Avenue neighborhood. Both long term and short term strategies have been developed to steward both public and private investment in the neighborhood in the areas of retail development, residential and mixed-use development, parking and public infrastructure in the form of widened sidewalks, streetscape, trees and landscape and pocket parks. Emphasis has centered on housing and parking on the philosophy that the revitalization of a neighborhood is dependent on the establishment of critical mass in the form of people living there and visiting.
