Wilshire Center District Team’s Activities

The Street Scape Improvement initiative set forth by the Wilshire Center BID has resulted in great success. We were able to remove and recycle over 10 Tons of cracked and lifted concrete from the tree wells along the sidewalks of Wilshire Blvd, 8th St, 6th St and 3rd St, within the District. The feedback we've received from store owners and local residents has been wonderful. By removing and then grooming these areas, we've eliminated dozens of hazards, as many
sections were lifted up to 4" above level ground. This effort not only made the pedestrian areas looks better, but it allows for healthier growth of our beloved street trees. The result is an environmentally friendly, sustainable, and clean walkway leading down the busy, and bustling corridor of the of the Wilshire Center District.

The Wilshire Center BID appreciates the opportunity to be able to help out the community in these challenging times. The business owners in Wilshire Center District of Ktown were very happy that Wilshire Center BID and the Korean American Chamber of Commerce stepped up to assist with protecting the storefronts during the time of unrest. We were able to respond quickly, and to help over 20 small business owners. We are happy to help and thankful as well, to create jobs and connect with the community.
