There will be a secure parking lot near LAX that housing insecure people will be able to park at so they can sleep in their cars safely.
“As both a city department and as a member of the communities in which we operate, Los Angeles World Airports must do its part to address the crisis of homelessness,” Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer of LAWA, said
This lot will be on La Cienega Boulevard and 111th Street and will have restrooms, security and trash services. This is so incredible! Those who will be parking in the lot can be there overnight but must leave the sight during the day and must sign a code of conduct. Another good thing to come from this is that those who are going to take advantage of this opportunity will be able to enroll in a program that helps them find a more permanent residence. LOVE THAT!
Safe Parking LA is a county program aimed to provide secure overnight parking for those who sleep in their cars and the L.A. City Council approved funding for this program last year. Click here for more.
