Draft Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan

The Central Burbank Library has received both the Draft Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan and the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Report/Statement of the Plan. They are available at the reference desk and ready for your perusal. The lengthy PEIR/PEIS is also available online. The public review period runs from February 2 to March 19, 2007. Burbank neighbors can find copies at the North Hollywood Regional Library and Glendale Central Library.

From the Project Description:

"The Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan is intended to serve as 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, ecological restoration, revitalized riverfront communities in key opportunity areas and recommendations for a River Improvement Overlay district along the 32-mile stretch of the River within the City of Los Angeles."

EDIT: For more information, please see the article in the L.A. Times, released on Groundhog's Day. (Hooray for spring!)
