Pop-Up MANGo: Temporary Greenway Installation and Community Festival (Workshop #2)
On September 21, 2013, 400+ community members attended Pop-Up MANGo, the 2nd interactive community workshop to define and plan the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway. At the event, participants viewed and interacted with temporary installations of potential elements of the project. These included a neighborhood traffic circle and a mini-park. Additionally, food trucks, music, and a children’s art workshop were a part of this exciting event. Community organizations were also present, including Santa Monica Spoke, SantaMonicaWalks!, Meals on Wheels West, and the Santa Monica Police Department. Based on the feedback received, the project team will work toward a preferred design and additional community meetings will be held to obtain input.

Fifty-four community members attended the kick-off workshop for Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway. Thanks to everyone who came out and gave us their input! There was a great turnout and a lot of feedback about how the community would like to see the corridor transformed and/or preserved.
At the meeting, a short presentation about the project was followed by four walking and biking tours of the neighborhood. Each tour made several stops along the proposed Greenway and attendees provided comment on aspects of the street, sidewalk, lighting, landscaping, vehicle behavior, and crossings.
