A Long-Term Vision for the
Community of Northridge
The City of Los Angeles, the Northridge East, West and South Neighborhood Councils, Cal State University Northridge and the North Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce have launched an aggressive campaign to establish a vision and develop a strategic concept plan for the community of Northridge and Northridge Business District.
The vision considers community goals, the existing Northridge Community Plan and business/tenant mix, local and regional demographics, potential for public and private redevelopment, and prior initiatives. The vision also focuses on the Cal State University Northridge campus as the hub of the community—how best to develop the “University Village” personality and synergies between the university’s new Valley Performing Arts Center, and a walkable “village” area of the business district.
Downtown Northridge selected as the first for
Great Streets Program
Reseda Blvd between Plummer & Parthenia Running near the western edge of Cal State Northridge, Reseda Boulevard is an iconic San Fernando Valley street: wide, with lots of space for cars and lots of parking. But Reseda also has good transit service and a closeby MetroLink regional rail station, as well as bike lanes. With student housing, new apartments, and single-family homes nearby, Reseda Blvd brings town and gown together. In partnership with neighborhood councils, CD12, Cal State Northridge, AIA, and others, Great Streets will enhance Reseda Blvd's accessibility for people traveling by transit, foot, and bike. Mayor Garcetti's Great Streets program seeks to bolster economic development along Reseda with better neighborhood amenities, including improved sidewalks and outdoor dining.
