Welcome to the Idea Factory!

We want to build a Los Angeles that lives up to its greatest potential, and to do that we need the help and support of Angelenos across the City. What ideas do you have to help your block, your neighborhood, your schools, your commute to work or your time out in the community better, safer, stronger, more efficient and more sustainable? Tell us!

On this page you can submit ideas, vote on existing ideas, or add comments. We're kicking it off with Austin's plan to make public transportation in Los Angeles greener, while bringing good paying jobs into the City. We'll keep adding our own ideas periodically, and we'll look to you to add your own and comment on others.
