NEW CITY U TEACHING SEMINAR THIS SUNDAY @ Downtown (8/20 @ 1:30 PM):
“AN ALTERNATIVE PARADIGM TO REVITALIZATION OF THE LOWER L.A. RIVER” (by Tim Mok @ the Church Office)
Ever wonder how the L.A. River and surrounding green spaces affect urban life? Revitalization of the Lower L.A. River will likely break ground in 2018, which could greatly benefit existing communities if improvements parallel their ideas and needs. This case study research explores how people from the City of Maywood imagine revitalization of the Lower L.A. River, and other local opportunities to be. They have shared their perspectives with respect to four categories: (1) Current Relationship to the Lower L.A. River; (2) Environmental and Recreational Infrastructure Uses and Needs; (3) Attitudes Towards Gentrification; and, (4) Patterns in Participation and Community Engagement. Maywood’s “local knowledge” may be different than what decision-makers have anticipated, and should influence how revitalization is facilitated. Join us in learning and empathizing with these rich perspectives!
Presenter: Tim Mok
Tim Mok is an L.A. County native, but has lived all over the country. Some of his favorite memories during this time were maintaining hiking trails in Massachusetts and working with owls in Alabama. After his California hiatus, he returned to L.A. for familiarity, and to start graduate school. He also got to know New City through folks at the ‘Acts 2’ Grow and Serve Group.
