Three private parcels totaling 21.46 acres are located within the project area. Improvements on acquired parcels would include debris removal, creation of wetland habitat and swales, planting of native vegetation, and repairing any fencing as necessary. Improvements would also be made on the approximately 9-acre parcel owned by the Simi Valley Unified School District. The properties would be regraded to create wetland habitat that would allow for increased infiltration of storm water. Small wetlands, in the form of meanders, would be created.
