"Destination: Pico" Community Forum

Come see the designs for Pico Blvd that our community has chosen!

After six interactive workshops, 700 survey responses, and 170 meetings with business owners, our community has built a vision for Pico, and the Pico Great Streets Collaborative wants to share it with you.

Join us at Saturn St. Elementary on Saturday, August 19th, to see your ideas for public safety, landscaping, art, and more - with photo simulations that show how these investments will look on the street. And tell us what you want to see built first!

Saturn Set Up Day

It's almost back to school time, which means it's time for our 2nd annual Saturn Set Up day!

Let's help the teachers at Saturn get their classrooms ready for the students. 

Volunteers will get paired with a teacher who will let them know what they need, whether it is wiping down desks, decorating a bulletin board, or something else.  Like last year, we'll be providing coffee and bagels for everyone to enjoy. 

This year we've also asked teachers to create "wish lists" of school supplies, and we've made an Amazon wish list to make it easy for people to donate.  Friends of Saturn will be collecting donations from local businesses and community members to make sure the teachers and students have everything they need to get the year off to a great start!

Sign up to volunteer here:

If you're unable to volunteer, please consider making a donation by purchasing something from the teachers' Amazon wish list.  When you add an item to your cart, select the Saturn Wish List Address in your address drop-down list.

Pico Blvd Kiosk Makeover

Please help!

One of our neighbors, David Dahlke, is bringing people together to repair and repaint the community kiosks on Pico Blvd -- and he needs our help!

Fifteen years ago, these kiosks were placed on Pico to provide folks with information about our neighborhoods. Over the years, they've faced taggers and the elements and some have become eyesores. Please consider volunteering a couple hours of your Independence Day weekend to help David turn these kiosks back into a useful resource for our community.

Email him to volunteer or get more info:
