Grateful Resident Shares Before & After Story On Our Council District 8 Sidewalk & Tree Improvements Project
"I just wanted to send you this picture of my house now that the trees are gone. I was able to clean up all the bird feces and dirt. I painted and spruced it up. What a big difference.
The company you hired did a great job on the sidewalk. Another great thing is that people used to come park their cars under the covering of those big trees and sit in the shade and smoke dope. I've even found condoms. Now that's over too. I am so happy.
While I was cleaning up and painting, over 20 neighbors came by to express their happiness to see those trees gone, and how much better the neighborhood looks now. Everyone says how nice it is to now have a sidewalk to walk down without having to look out for all those tree roots buckling the sidewalk, and you can park your car and actually exit on the sidewalk now that the tree roots are gone. It absolutely wonderful!!
Thanks again for all your help."

Metrolink - Union Station Platform 7 Project
Approximately $8.5 million in improvements to Platform 7, one of L.A. Union Station’s original boarding platforms, have been completed. The project entailed restoring Tracks 13, 14 and 15, which were removed from service more than 35 years ago. In addition, crews built new stairways and accessible ramps on the north and south sides, connecting to L.A. Union Station’s main passenger tunnel. Both of these improvements will allow Metrolink to better accommodate growing ridership by operating on more tracks and allowing for a smoother flow of passengers to and from the trains and tunnels. Other improvements included installing energy efficient lighting and new message boards and revamping our train yard communication and backup electric systems to facilitate improved emergency response in the event of a power outage.
