Recognizing these promising new developments in Lents, Crossroads Consulting approached LNA Board Officers with an offer to provide assistance through the 2006 Workshop course. A subcommittee representing LNA's board accepted the Crossroads Consulting proposal to identify quickly implementable improvement strategies to create momentum and foster a sense of optimism about Lents Town Center revitalization. Neighbors would like to see improvements made now to help improve Lents' image as a special place. Three areas were selected for attention: Imageability- The sense of being in a unique, cohesive neighborhood Streetscape quality- Pedestrian comfort and accessibility Getting "feet on the street" in Lents Town Center - Increasing pedestrian activity on the street. This project was conducted under the supervision of Sy Adler, Deborah Howe, Connie Ozawa, and Sumner Sharpe.
