MLK Hospital Campus

January 8th, 2010

Thank you to those who were able to attend the Community Planning Workshop for the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Medical Center Campus (MLK Hospital Campus) on Thursday, January 7, 2010.

The purpose of that workshop was to collect comments and ideas for the development of the MLK Hospital Campus Master Plan.

Those who were unable to attend may still submit your comments via email to mlkmasterplan@gmail.com by Thursday, January 14, 2010.

The Master Plan is a document that will provide the County of Los Angeles with guidance on how to develop the MLK Hospital Campus. This document will specify the types of land uses to be included on the site and will identify the general location and amount of new development.

Five topics were selected to guide the discussion:

Health and Wellness – including health promotion, disease prevention, chronic care, community wellness

Transportation – including bus routes, shuttles, other access to the campus

Land Uses – including business/commercial, retail/shopping; open space/recreation; child care, housing

Campus Master Plan – development of the campus, impact on the community

General Input – additional comments, feedback

We encourage you to share your ideas!
