This week, we will be introducing three categories of programs: Maintenance, Management, and Operations. These broad topics focus on responsibilities of City departments and transit providers, key partnerships between public and private sector agencies/organizations, and movement of all transportation networks/systems within the City. The City’s circulation network can be broken down into three parts: the road, all modes of travel, and the decisions that determine how/where these modes can move. These programs include:
- Current and future responsibilities of City Departments (Transportation and Public Works – Bureaus of Street Services, Engineering, and Street Lighting) to maintain the right-of-way and operate traffic control systems;
- Daily operations of Metro, Metrolink, and other transit agencies to provide high quality service; and
- Measures to ensure that ensure that all modes of travel are represented and included.
Many of the programs outlined in the Plan currently exist and are ongoing. The greater purpose of these categories is to highlight that increased collaboration, cooperation, and coordination (between departments, agencies, and organizations) are crucial to the implementation of the Mobility Element and a well-functioning transportation system.
You can participate in this online discussion by visiting ideas.la2b.org and selecting the “Maintenance,” “Management,” and “Operations” topics. In each topic, you can rate each of the programs (love it, like it, it’s okay, or neutral), and click on the program for a more complete description and to leave comments, ask questions or suggest new programs. You can also download a complete list of the programs under Maintenance, Management, and Operations on our Documents page. Remember, we will introduce new categories every week and the topics will remain open for comments until the end of September.
