At the September Board Meeting, Chair Garcetti announced the "Twenty-Eight by '28 Initiative" to highlight projects for completion by the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. At the direction of the Chair, staff has developed a draft candidate list of projects that includes Measure R, Measure M and other projects already slated for completion by 2028, as well as "aspirational" project schedules that propose to be accelerated by 2028 ("aspirational" is defined as a project that has a current delivery date later than 2028).
