Welcome to the Third Los Angeles

Welcome to The Third Los Angeles

If you’ve been paying attention to Los Angeles, you are well aware that the old clichés about L.A. no longer apply. This is a region trying, and often struggling, to define a post-suburban identity. The Third Los Angeles Project is a series of public conversations examining a city moving into a dramatically new phase in its civic development. Don’t miss the kick off – an introduction to the goals and central themes of the project, this Thursday at 7:30pm.
