This ill-conceived and now abandoned plan would have turned Pico and Olympic into one-way streets, condemning the neighborhoods in between to endless cut-through traffic.
This was Fix The City’s first project and we believe the first time the name was used. The domain name “fixthecity.org” was reserved on June 20, 2007.
The group effort included a broad coalition who worked together, funded a lawsuit and won. The group was led by Jay Handal and what would become FTC’s founding members.

Issues & Rationale
- Neighborhoods in between Pico and Olympic would be devastated by cut-through traffic.
