Project: River Green PP&D Upper LA River Watershed

Description: Pre-improvement planning project for the Los Angeles River watershed, “River Green.” River Green is the idea that the essence of a river can be understood through its identifiable natural resources, such as presence of water, wildlife, ability to support recreation, etc.,These types of projects also increase the region’s resiliency to the impacts of climate change, and benefit all communities

Reference Number: 3810P011961

Implemented By: MRCA

Objective: Frame River discussions with the premise that revitalization is fundamentally a green process. There is a need to ensure that the policies and goals now being developed include the River Green concept, and deeply integrate it in the efforts of all of the jurisdictions working along the waterways of the Upper Los Angeles River Watershed. Staff plan to work with a team of consultants to develop a guiding vision and recommendations that will be recommended for implementation throughout all of the various planning efforts currently underway. Technical and engineering studies that support and quantify the River Green concept will be conducted. This project will also be used to identify and develop a wide range of potential projects that would implement the River Green concept, including acquisition of land, public access points, and recreational opportunities throughout the watershed
