Some Work To Do

I’ve been asked by The Robert Group to help them do community outreach and canvassing on a sewer rehabilitation project along Vernon Avenue in South Los Angeles (which I just happened to visit not too long ago). If you recall, last year, I helped them do outreach for a community meeting they organized for proposed improvements to the Imperial/Wilmington Metro Rail station.

Today I met with Arcelia Arce from TRG, who gave me information on my assignment; I would be talking to residents and businesses along Vernon Avenue and making sure they knew about the City of Los Angeles’ MAZE 5 sewer rehab project, anticipated to start in March, which would involve major construction along that thoroughfare, particularly on the corner of Vernon and 4th avenues (where the “Junction Structure” is labeled on the map at left). I would also list any concerns the locals had with the project. I would be able to do this any time, as long as it’s done a couple weeks prior to the start of construction. She gave me a City orange vest to help me look official. Actually, the green light to go out would be dependent on her follow-up meeting with the City. But being somewhat familiar with the area, this would be an interesting opportunity to see how people respond to the effects of a large utilities project in their front yard.
