  2. 2. 1 INTRODUCTION This is a summary of Space 134 Workshop #2, which was held on Saturday, September 26th, 2015. The event took place from 10AM to 12:30PM at R.D. White Elementary School. The purpose of the event was to provide information and receive feedback on the Space 134 Freeway Cap project. Admittance and food were free and the event was open to the public. A mural truck, graffiti removal truck, and pop-up park made the event fun for people of all ages. In total, approximately 96 people attended. During the event, participants signed in and received handouts describing the project and the event agenda. Alan Loomis, Deputy Director for Urban Design & Mobility, presented a brief overview and update of project status. After the presentation, participants provided feedback about the project’s conceptual design, mobility alternatives, funding, and operation through an interactive workshop and survey. The results are included on the following pages. The feedback from this event will ultimately be used to inform the next phase of the Space 134 Freeway Cap project. Key Takeway: 76% of participants are in support of the project. For more information, go to www.space134.net (IMAGES BY: CITY OF GLENDALE) PLACEHOLDER
