  1. South Park BID Earns International Award

    Leave a Comment

    South Park has experienced a tremendous transformation in the last decade. Now the South Park Business Improvement District, which promotes the neighborhood and runs its clean and safe programs, has won a prestigious prize. The International Downtown Association this month announced the BID has earned what is called a Downtown Pinnacle award for its efforts to repair broken sidewalks, create new public art and cultivate the street’s landscape. The award recognizes improvements to a neighborhood’s urban design, function and economic value. The BID conducted the work, dubbed the “Streetscape Strategic Plan,” with a $90,000 budget, according to the organization. “We were able to accomplish a high-impact, replicable project with a relatively small budget and on an abridged timeline by building high-quality partnerships,” South Park BID Executive Director Jessica Lall said in a prepared statement. The award comes at a fitting time: The South Park BID is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. To view the original LA Downtown News article, click here.

    The 2010 Coro Fellows class hosted the 1st annual Coro Alumni Reunion on July 23rd.  Over 75 people attended the summer event, complete with wine, light refreshments, and live music provided by our resident staff DJ, Frank Romero-Crockett.  A special thank you to the 2010 Coro Fellows class for organizing the event and to the Alumni Committee for all their hard work in getting the word out.

    This summer marks the first alumni-led reunion organized by the class from 5 years ago.  Coro Southern California commissioned the Coro Fellows class of 2010 with organizing this year’s reunion.  Next summer, the proverbial baton will be passed to the class of 2011.
