Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan
Los Angeles, California
Mark Johnson, FASLA; Richard Farley, FAIA

For decades, Angelinos have called for revitalization of the degraded, channelized, concrete-armored Los Angeles River. A new master plan developed by the city's Bureau of Engineering with consultation from Civitas can make it a reality. The plan proposes redevelopment of more than 750 acres of contiguous riverside real estate for open space and commercial, educational, recreational, and industrial land uses. Restoring the river ecology and creating a chain of parks within the city will improve regional water quality and help set the stage for greening this sprawling city.
