"Sherri Franklin, founder of the Urban Design Center, has spent a quarter-century devoted to the development of affordable housing, community facility, recreational, open-space, infrastructure, economic-development, and social-enterprise projects. Franklin spoke with TPR to share lessons from her years building the capacity of communities in South Los Angeles and other underserved areas—as well as updating readers on current UDC work ranging from the 6th Street Bridge, to the 710 Freeway Extension, to TOD and pedestrian-planning for Leimert Park Village. Franklin dedicates this interview to her mentor, Juanita Tate, who she celebrates in the piece."

Excerpt from interview:

"In 2014, I went to a meeting to see what was happening with stakeholders in Leimert Park Village. They asked me to help them create a vision for linking the Village with the new Crenshaw-LAX rail line coming along, to make it possible for the businesses in the community to benefit from this capital investment. We went about launching the 2020 Vision Initiative so that we could build a marketing strategy for cultural tourism. Through it, we began to look at development within Leimert Park Village and along the corridor, seeing what can happen to create more jobs and a better economy.

We have also worked with the planning department to make sure the area remains a cultural district—and that it’s a pedestrian-oriented environment, even though it’s along the transit line."
