Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan

Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan

The Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan was a milestone achievement for Los Angeles. It coalesced diverse stakeholders to support the revitalization of 32 miles of a concrete-lined channelized river into public green space in the heart of one of America’s densest cities. A comprehensive and detailed outreach and analysis process included workshops to educate the public on watershed health and sustainability and identify priority issues and opportunity areas. The plan outlines a framework to revitalize the river into a multi-purpose system that restores habitat, connects to park-poor neighborhoods with public greenways, and improves the river’s flood capacity and water quality.
