Developing Innovative Approaches to Clean Streets and Livability

In Los Angeles, homelessness is having a multiplier effects on a number of city services. Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN) is working to find opportunities to develop a more streamlined and enhanced strategy, as well to adopt innovative approaches to improve services in light of the many challenges that come with this type of work. The city wants to streamline and integrate the efforts to better serve the city and enhance performance while minimizing cost.

FUSE Fellow Ann Zald  will help improve the city’s Clean Streets operations, identify best practices, and maximize the effectiveness of city services. Ann will also evaluate new potential partnerships with organizations currently serving the homeless population that could help reduce the volume of trash and related problems around encampments.
