The passage in November 2008 of Measure R, a half cent sales tax in Los Angeles County, will provide as much as 40 billion Dollars for local transit-related projects over the next 30 years. Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama has pledged to make the largest investment since the 1950s in the country''s crumbling infrastructure.

The intent of this open ideas competition is to:
- Expand and improve the field of ideas for transportation design and transit-driven urban redevelopment projects within Los Angeles County.
- To broaden our thinking and discussions about the relationships between transit systems, public space and the built environment.

Any interested party may enter this competition. Entries may be submitted by individuals or teams. We strongly encourage cross-disciplinary team entries.

Competition Entry Specifications
Entries should work within the parameters of LA County Ballot Measure R, and should be tailored to the Measure''s guidelines.

Proposals should be developed to include both
1- Local Area Plan - 1 Board
Develop a specific site or neighborhood within a selected Regional Transportation Study zone (See Entry Background Documents). Revolving around a transit extension project, this may include any or all of the following: a transit station, a transit oriented development, a neighborhood redevelopment plan, an open space element, and connections to the rest of the city.
2- Transit System Scale Design and Planning Proposals - 1 Board
Illustrate a broader solution for a specific transit corridor or develop solutions for the entire City of LA''s transit systems and related urban planning. This study may include the planning and design of new transit lines, new transit technologies, connections between existing lines, connections to the rest of the city, links to highways, pedestrian and bicycle systems, or even broader, even untested, reformulations of the transit system.

25.00 Dollars (Please provide copy of Student ID)
