The University of Southern California is seeking to improve its Health Sciences Campus by beautifying surrounding streets, adding new facilities for students and patients on existing USC-owned land. Several proposed improvements to the USC Health Sciences Campus are being presented to the community for comment and input before being finalized and processed for city approval.
USC recently hosted two project workshops at the Hazard Park to solicit community input. Approximately 100 people attended the outreach events at the Hazard Park Gym, which provided opportunities to ask project consultants about the proposed construction. The comments provided by community members included requests for more community outreach events, alternatives to a proposed street improvement, protection of existing park habitat, information regarding potential job opportunities, and requests for proved recreational equipment for Hazard Park.
USC strongly values community input and is currently scheduling future outreach events for the Hillside, Lincoln Heights, El Sereno, Ramona Gardens, Hazard Park and Boyle Heights areas. The purpose of these outreach events is to provide project information and to gather community suggestions regarding proposed campus improvements. If you belong to a group that would like to host a presentation on USC’s proposed campus improvements please contact USC at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also get project information and submit your ideas to USC through their USC Health Sciences Campus Masterplan website: http://hscmasterplan.usc.edu/. Continue reading
