Description

For the opening night of Frogtown Futuro, economic development consultant Daniel Tellalian and longtime Frogtown resident David De La Torre talked about what revitalization will bring to both the LA River and Frogtown.

David De La Torre has lived in Elysian Valley for 34 years and is an active member of the community. He is a past neighborhood council board member, the current head of the Elysian Valley Neighborhood Watch and is the Chairperson of Jardin Del Rio Community Garden. When he is not organizing the community in Elysian Valley, he is a commercial accounts manager for Pasha Stevedoring & Terminals, LP in the Port of Los Angeles.

Daniel Tellalian is a principal at Emerging Markets, Inc., a Los Angeles-based economic development consulting firm that helps private sector corporations pursue business opportunities in low-income and urban areas. Daniel was recruited by the City of Los Angeles as a founding board member of the L.A. River Revitalization Corporation, tasked with responsibly developing the 51-mile corridor adjacent to the Los Angeles River.
