Project: G2 Taylor Yard Pre-Improvement Planning

Description: The City is in partnership with the Conservancy and the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) for restoring the former Taylor Yard rail site adjacent to a soft-bottom segment of the Los Angeles River into a regionally significant park space, which would “enhance habitat connectivity, develop wildlife habitat, provide recreation and interpretation, improve the water quality of the watershed, and promote access to the Los Angeles River.” The City’s grant application complements a grant from the Conservancy to the MRCA for planning and construction of improvements for public access and habitat restoration on G2. The City indicates matching funding of $1,666,667 for a total project cost of $3,166,667, which will be used for the project, including Environmental Assessment work.
