History of the SPACE District
San Pedro, California, a historic Los Angeles community adjacent to the Port of Los Angeles, is home to an active visual and performing arts scene. In 2007, the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency led an effort to designate a section of downtown San Pedro as a City of Los Angeles arts district. Local civic leaders, community members and artists served on the committee to form the district. The first step was to complete a study of the needs and conditions of the local arts environment. This study was performed by AMS Planning & Research, based in Petaluma, CA and completed in June, 2008. On February 13, 2009, the L.A. City Council has adopted a resolution to form the arts district, by unanimous vote.
