LANI revitalizes neighborhoods by engaging people and building vibrant public spaces. We envision urban spaces where, regardless of location or population, every neighborhood is a vibrant, functional and healthy place cultivated by engaged community members.
Founded in 1994, LANI is a nonprofit organization that has helped revitalize more than 50 low and mixed-income neighborhoods in Los Angeles County. We work with communities to plan and implement projects like new parks and open spaces, business façade improvements, street tree plantings and sidewalk repairs, public art and placemaking, and transportation enhancements like crosswalks, bike lanes, lighting, bus shelters, and transit plazas. Understanding that community members know the needs of their neighborhoods best, LANI empowers local stakeholders to take an active role in planning and building improvements that expand public safety, enhance health and the environment, spur economic development, and foster local pride.
