Document Description
The Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan is a blueprint for implementing a variety of greening projects, including the development of parks and open space, pedestrian and bicycle trails, bridges, enhanced connector streets, channel modifications, revitalized riverfront communities in key opportunity areas and a River Improvement Overlay (RIO) district along the 32-mile stretch of the River within the City of Los Angeles. Implementing the LARRMP recommendations over the near-term planning period (5 to 20 years) and the long-term planning period (20 to 50 years) constitutes the proposed action evaluated in the PEIR/PEIS. The general project area includes approximately one-half mile on each side of the 32-mile River corridor that begins near Owensmouth Avenue in Canoga and continues downstream to Washington Boulevard, near the northern boundary of the city of Vernon. The Plan intends to revitalize the general environment of the Los Angeles River by providing improved natural habitat, economic values, and water quality, as well as recreation, and open space amenities. The Plan area includes several locations where the potential exists for restoring a more natural riverine environment along the River, while maintaining and improving levels of flood protection. Creation of treatment wetlands in and around the River, to treat storm flows and to restore missing linkages of fragmented habitat, would also be pursued through LARRMP projects. LARRMP purposes include the provision of improved public access in the River to the River and reinvestment in the urban system that results in economic growth.
