The County of Los Angeles has hosted two of three
community meetings regarding the Olive View UCLA
Medical Center Campus (OVMC Campus). This Master
Plan will be a guideline for future construction and
growth for the OVMC Campus.
The County presented two options for a Master
Plan including the “Boulevard” option, and the “Nature’s
Edge” option at two previous meetings. Both
options focus on creating a more sustainable open
green campus, taking into consideration the expanding
health needs of the public.
If you have additional input, they would appreciate
receiving your feedback no later than Friday, November
28, 2014. The final community meeting for this
process is anticipated to be held in early 2015. Email
