Which streets in Northridge and Chatsworth need sprucing up? The city of Los Angeles wants to fix more than 8,700 miles of roadway after decades of wear and tear, but the repairs could come at a cost of $3 billion in assessments if approved by voters.
L.A. City Councilman Mitch Englander wants to gather feedback from local residents Tuesday at 6 p.m. about the potential ballot measure during an informational meeting of the Los Angeles Public Works Committee at Van Nuys City Hall.
"It is vital that we take action to update our City’s infrastructure and actively seek funding options to improve our streets,” Englander said. “I am excited to hear the input of the community residents and stakeholders on solving this problem and moving toward a better transportation future.”
He proposed the potential ballot measure with fellow L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino.
The council would have the approve the measure for it to be placed on a ballot for voters in a future election.
NBC4 reports that if passed, homeowners would average an annual payment of $121 over 29 years to fund the repairs.
Van Nuys City Hall is located at 14410 Sylvan Street, Van Nuys, CA 91401.
