Making LA River Revitalization a Reality

City of Los Angeles, Bureau of Engineering

What's Next?

Phased Approach

The first steps of planning and environmental site assessments are being funded by a $2 million Proposition 1 grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy.

Due to project size and complexity it is necessary to look at a phased approach to remediation and project implementation. These steps may include:

  • Early Activation (2-5 years): Signage, limited access, planting, programming, soil remediation, safe public access
  • Interim (6-14 years): Soil remediation, land contouring/topographical improvements, advanced planting, recreational improvement and programming
  • Long-term (15 years and on): Redesign river channel to incorporate site, additional structures/built elements, completion of site development
