And because the huge, gazillion-dollar public projects to turn the concrete River into a 51-mile greenbelt through the heart of the LA area are happening right now. Revitalizing the river will clean our waters & maximize our water supplies. It’ll connect our communities & it’ll bring parks & public spaces to many of LA’s most challenged & parkstarved neighborhoods.
And because you should be able to find & enjoy what’s been built so far.
And because you should have a say in the future—especially if you live near the river. What, where, how fast & for whom. They’re all up for grabs.
And because this huge vision for new parks, wetlands, bikeways & public spaces will transform the LA area—& everyone (not just developers & the planners we love) should know what’s going on & have the chance to speak up.
So go, find, explore enjoy—& claim & reimagine the river & LA as our public treasure & our megalopolis.
