Convention Center Issues Plastic Straw Ban

South Park’s Gilbert Lindsay Plaza, the space that connects the Los Angeles Convention Center to Staples Center, is scheduled for a facelift, and Downtowners this week can weigh in on the plan.

Anschutz Entertainment Group is hosting its second community meeting to gather feedback and provide information on a planned overhaul of the plaza named for the former Ninth District councilman.

The meeting, taking place on Wednesday, June 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the Gold Ballroom of the JW Marriott at L.A. Live, will include an update on some questions provided at an initial meeting in April. Free parking will be available at the L.A. Live West Garage, and the meeting is open to the community.

Martha Saucedo, AEG’s executive vice president of external affairs, said that the renovation will focus on two goals: providing a space that will benefit incoming conventions, and addressing a lack of green space in the area.

Information will also be provided on the Convention Center expansion plan.
