At the Little Tokyo Working Group meeting Thursday night, Metro distributed a draft proposal that more fully describes their commitment to pay for a consultant that would assist the Little Tokyo community with the Draft EIS/EIR for the Regional Connector project. Metro will pay up to $30K for a consultant to be selected by the Little Tokyo Community Council that will assist the community with the development of proposed mitigation measures for each build alternative under consideration for the Regional Connector. Interested parties should contact LTCC.

The Historical Society is encouraging people to bring photographs and/or documents that help to capture the history of Little Tokyo.
The photos will be scanned on site while participants wait, which should take no more than a few minutes to digitize.
We've set up this space where members of the Little Tokyo community could share information, thoughts, ideas, and opinions about the Little Tokyo neighborhood, it's people, politics, culture/history, businesses, and events. If you have something about the community you'd like to share with us, send us an email to email@example.com.
This project is a part of Little Tokyo Unplugged, a community Wi-Fi network that contributes to the development of our neighborhood through wireless and other information technologies.
