- Compton Creek Regional Garden Park Master Plan
- The Master Plan is intended to serve as a guide to improve Compton Creek with the creation of parks, pocket parks, community gardens, public art, landscaping, and trails. The Master Plan identifies locations for potential components such as tree plantings; amenities such as trash receptacles and drinking fountains; parks and programs such as playgrounds and athletic facilities; and communication improvements such as way-finding signs. The Master Plan is the result of a collaborative stakeholder effort that includes City and civic leaders, citizens, urban, designers, architects, landscape architects, and economic and environmental consultants. Stakeholders were brought together in a series of meetings which culminated in the development of the Master Plan. The Master Plan focuses at a detailed scale on the ecological, development, and circulation issues within the City of Compton. At this local scale, the master plan outlines opportunities and existing constraints along Compton Creek. The Master Plan identifies ten "Creek Systems" that suggest systematic improvements of typical spaces and urban types adjacent to Compton Creek. The Master plan includes a parcel-by-parcel analysis, detailing prioritized recommendations for site-specific landscapes and amenities, graphics and signage, security strategies, and material and plant guidelines. The proposed project would not modify the Compton Creek channel.
