Van Nuys Boulevard Revitalization Efforts
Councilman Tony Cárdenas has made it a priority to improve the quality of life and the business climate along the Van Nuys corridor near the Government Center. By freeing up parking for patrons of stores, his efforts have added parking capacity for businesses by creating angled parking spaces along Sylvan Street and changing the policy regarding city employee use of on-street parking. In the past, dozens of city employees were using their placards and city vehicles to park for free at meters, taking away convenient parking spaces from patrons and visitors. Thanks to Cárdenas, the city is enforcing its own policy to crack down on government employees who take away these central spaces instead of using their assigned public parking garages.
While Cárdenas has made progress, he is asking businesses and residents to participate in a partnership to make more improvements.
He wants to hear from you.
