Additional Information:

Join us to discuss implementation of the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan
(LARRMP) and to share your input on possibilities for future River projects. To accommodate diverse schedules, two duplicate meetings will be held on the same day—one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

Our two goals are (1) to provide brief updates of various projects and other activities related to the City’s River revitalization efforts and (2) to gather input on future project possibilities through an interactive workshop.

The meetings will first provide updates on current projects (by staff from public agencies and other organizations). The second part of the meetings will be a design charrette workshop to gather input on potential future projects in anticipation of federal support. Your input at the start of this new phase of partnership with the federal government will guide our work in preparing for future funding opportunities.

Updates on a variety of topics related to the LARRMP will be provided, including: the River Improvement Overlay (LA-RIO) District; the Cornfields Arroyo Seco Specific Plan (CASP); the River Revitalization Corporation; the River Keepers; the River Bikeway; River Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Study; Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) demonstration project opportunities; and various other River projects and activities. Updates by other organizations and groups are welcomed!

Please direct questions to Carol Armstrong or Larry Hsu of the City’s Los Angeles River Project Office: (213) 485-5762, Carol.Armstrong@lacity.org
(213) 485-4562, Lawrence.Hsu@lacity.org
