Welcome to Green City LA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to building a more sustainable and equitable future for the residents of Los Angeles County. Our mission is to empower communities by providing tools, resources, and support for environmental improvement projects and development.

Founded in September 2022, Green City LA is committed to creating a more livable and resilient region through initiatives focused on alley revitalization, storm and flood water management, urban heat island effect, urban-wildland interface, clean streets, and safe streets. We aim to create a Safer, Greener, and Cleaner environment for all by engaging with communities and promoting collaboration.

Our Goals

Alley Revitalization
Green City LA recognizes the importance of alleys in our neighborhoods and their potential to be transformed into vibrant community spaces. Our team works with residents to assess their alleys' needs and develop revitalization project plans. We provide technical assistance, resources, and community outreach support to ensure the success of these projects.

Storm and Flood Water Management
With Los Angeles County prone to flooding, Green City LA is committed to creating resilient communities that are better prepared for the impacts of climate change. We offer workshops and resources to educate communities on the importance of stormwater management and ways to reduce the risk of flooding.

Urban Heat Island Effect
The urban heat island effect is a phenomenon where cities are significantly warmer than surrounding rural areas due to the absorption of heat by buildings and pavement. This can have negative impacts on public health and exacerbate climate change. Green City LA is committed to addressing this issue by promoting green infrastructure, such as trees and green roofs, and providing resources for heat mitigation strategies.

Urban-Wildland Interface
As urban areas expand, they often come into contact with wildlands, creating unique challenges. Green City LA works with communities to develop plans for managing the interface between urban and wildland areas, including strategies for reducing the risk of wildfires.

Clean Streets and Safe Streets
Green City LA believes that every community deserves clean and safe streets. Our team works with residents to identify areas that need improvement, such as litter removal, graffiti removal, and sidewalk repair. We provide resources and technical assistance to help communities organize and implement clean-up events.

Community Service and Community Projects
Green City LA is committed to engaging with communities and promoting collaboration between residents, local organizations, and government agencies. We offer a variety of community service opportunities, such as clean-up events and alley revitalization projects. Our team also provides resources and support for community-led projects that promote sustainability and environmental stewardship.

At Green City LA, we believe that by working together, we can create a more sustainable and equitable future for all residents of Los Angeles County. We are committed to empowering communities by providing the tools, resources, and support they need to create positive change. Join us in building a better future for our region.
