Sidewalk: The Bureau of Engineering has installed its first sidewalk made from sustainable materials in Los Feliz. The sidewalk, on Clayton Avenue near Hillhurst Avenue, is made from permeable pavers that allow water to soak into the soil instead of running off into the street and storm drains as would be the case with a typical non-porous, concrete sidewalk, according to the office of Councilman David Ryu. The sustainable sidewalk is part of a pilot project proposed by Ryu as the city launches a 30-year, $1.4 billion sidewalk walk repair program.
