If you live in L.A.'s Council District 2 (we don't), you're in luck. The recently elected City Councilmember Paul Krekorian today released two useful Google maps for residents. One of them focuses on one of constituent's top complaints: street resurfacing.
The 12.07 miles resurfaced--that's 74 separate projects--within the district are marked on the map, color coded to the funding source (Gas Tax, Prop C and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act).
"These maps are part of our innovative approach to government that will not be limited to simply creating maps," explained Krekorian's spokesman Jeremy Oberstein (Transparency Note: Oberstein occasionally writes for LAist as a volunteer contributing to Arts & Events). "Councilmember Krekorian believes that government should be accessible to everyone, which is why we will be creating many more maps for the district and will be unveiling our new website in the coming weeks - of which a portion will be dedicated solely to maps everyone can use."
