Local News in Brief : Study of Renewal Needs OKd

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to spend $100,000 to conduct a study of renewal needs in Wilmington.

The study, proposed by harbor-area Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores, will look into economic conditions, population trends and other factors that affect industrial, commercial and residential development in Wilmington.

"It will . . . determine future development opportunities, providing the city with valuable planning information, possibly leading to expanding revitalization efforts in Wilmington," Flores said in a press release.

The study, to be conducted by the Community Redevelopment Agency and the Community Development Department, will focus on potential commercial growth on portions of Avalon Boulevard and Anaheim Street. It also will look into potential industrial development on the north side of Anaheim between Lakme Avenue and Alameda Street.
