    Visions To Victory

    Directed by Randolph Torres - Van Vleck and Brian Myers 2018 12 min
    This 12 minute documentary features in-depth interviews with community leaders of City Heights from 1978-2018 who refused to allow their neighborhood to be divided by a new freeway. In response, they organized and developed an alternative plan -- The Visions Project.

    Community leaders proposed to underground the freeway and cover it with 8 blocks of parks, housing, businesses, and rapid transit. But Caltrans had other plans.

    After a series of setbacks and decades of struggle, leaders were eventually victorious in achieving California's only freeway cover park, two adjacent parks, a separated bike path, two pedestrian bridges, and the region's first in-line bus rapid transit stations -- the new Mid-City Centerline Stations.

    This multi-generational campaign has made City Heights a more resilient community and has created a culture of advocacy and leadership known throughout California.
