Please join us in Little Tokyo for the second in a series of community workshops. The program -- organized by the official Grand Avenue Park design team, led by Brenda Levin, Mark Rios and Aaron Paley -- will include a presentation of initial design concepts that synthesize the ideas and principles generated in the first workshop. Participants at the workshop and those attending online will have the opportunity to give feedback to the design team.

Can't make it to the meeting? The Norman Lear Center is hosting a LIVE WEBCAST, complete with an online, real-time discussion board. Within 48 hours of the first workshop, as many people had viewed the Webcast online and posted comments as attended in person.

In an effort to extend its public outreach, the Grand Avenue Committee and Related Companies are endorsing event Webcasting and online civic engagement efforts by the Norman Lear Center. Online viewers can post comments and questions, which will be relayed to event moderators. Video of the event and a transcript will be archived online.

Please join us in person or online for this exciting experiment in civic engagement and design.
