The Northeast Los Angeles (NELA) Placemaking Design Competition wants to design implementable projects that enhance the neighborhood identity, river revitalization, community health, and public spaces of the NELA river area and its adjacent neighborhoods. The goal of this competition is to engage NELA stakeholders to transform an idea into a well thought out, implementable plan. Open to all creative placemakers, designers, artists, and Northeast Los Angeles stakeholders (residents, businesses, and community organizations). Local submissions are strongly encouraged. Six (6) winners will receive a $2,000 cash prize. Winning projects will be included in the Northeast Los Angeles Riverfront Collaborative’s Vision Plan and Economic Development Implementation Strategy. There is no guarantee that projects will be implemented.
