The City of Los Angeles, at the request of the Eighth Council District, selected LANI to administer the Leimert Park Neighborhood Block Grant (NBG) Program in order to create community consensus for targeted improvements while expediting the permitting and development of these improvements. Community priorities for the NBG funds included facade and signage improvements along the commercial corridors and landscaping improvements in adjacent residential areas. The planning and design for facade, signage and landscaping improvements was completed in March 2003. Construction of the facade improvements was completed in Winter 2005 and resulted in the revitalization of six contiguous buildings along Crenshaw Boulevard.
