The City of San Gabriel hosted the APA Los Angeles Section on August 25th for the third installment of the 2015 Summer in the City Series. 30+ planners and friends were treated to a tour of the historic Mission District where they sampled local Mexican fare, discussed the details of the Mission District Specific Plan, and were treated to a private tour and organ demonstration at the Mission Playhouse. The group then visited Vincent Lugo Park and was greeted by the Friends of La Laguna who discussed their efforts to save Laguna de San Gabriel, affectionately known as “dinosaur park”. Afterwards, the tour headed down Valley Boulevard to sample several local Chinese eateries. Presentations and discussions on the Valley Boulevard Specific Plan focused on Sab Gabriel’s unique cultural situation and how it impacts planning and development efforts. The event concluded with a private tour of a recent development success story, the Hilton San Gabriel.
