From Lot to Spot’s (FLTS) mission is to stimulate and contribute to community economic development in blighted communities by facilitating the creation of accessible green and open spaces. We promote social and economic revitalization through beautification through the creation of park spaces from vacant, blighted lots. FLTS strives to address the need and inequity of park/green space in underserved and blighted neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area. From Lot to Spot, through its vision of empowering neighborhoods one vacant lot at a time, works to empower residents by ensuring community participation and collaboration in every step of the decision-making process involved in creating these spaces and improving their neighborhoods.
our goal is to engage communities in the urban planning process by providing communities with the information and resources to create parks, public spaces among other projects. The idea is that planning should be community based, as members decide what kind of green spaces they would like to see in their neighborhoods. Ultimately, the goal is to provide community empowerment by fostering a connection between the project and the people in the surrounding neighborhoods so that they can take pride and ownership of their public space.
