NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
LASAN's Shade LA project will plant 2,700 I5-gallon parkway trees in DAC's, LICs, and LICs within ½ mile of a DAC (buffers). 900 of these trees will be planted in newly created 4'x6' tree wells along major corridors (e.g. Broadway, Lankershim, Boulevard, Tujunga Avenue, and Glenoaks Boulevard) that currently lack trees. Over 21,000 square feet of concrete is proposed to be removed with this project. The remaining 1,800 trees will be planted in residential or commercial districts that have existing open parkways (i.e., areas between the sidewalk and the curb) that can accommodate new trees.
