Project Discussion

The intent of the Project Information Packet (PIP) is to help guide project proponents in developing projects that are consistent with the Lower Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan (LLARRP). Also, the PIP may identify areas where the IAG and its three Committees can serve as a resource to aid in finding funding, project partners, innovation, etc. The IAG Committees include Public Realm, Environment, Water & Infrastructure (PREWI), Programs & Policies (PP), and Public Advisory & Community Engagement (PACE).

Please answer the following questions as completely as possible given the stage of the project.

1. Is the project consistent with the Lower Los Angeles River Revitalization Plan (LLARRP)?

2. Does the project improve the overall water quality of the Los Angeles River?

3. Does the project implement stormwater capture, water conservation practices, and/or other methodologies?

4. What environmental documentation (CEQA, NEPA, etc.) will be required or has been completed for the project?

5. Are there any activities associated with the project that could impact the environment such as trash, pet waste, or chemicals?

6. Will the project reduce or mitigate GHG emissions, improve air quality, and/or improve water quality?

7. Will the project modify existing infrastructure such as flood control channels, open space, utility corridors, ROW land use, and transportation corridors?

8. Does the project create habitat or improve ecosystem health within the watershed?

9. Is there native Los Angeles River riparian/wetland vegetation planned for the project?

10. Is the project multi-benefit?

11. Does the project include a public safety aspect, (e.g., lighting, fencing, access, shade, etc.)?

12. Is the project located on public land for use by the public?

13. Does the project include interpretive and educational signage?

14. Does the project include any local art or cultural elements?

15. Does the project include nature-based solutions to address public land and community needs (e.g., trees for shade and air quality, wetlands for flood control and water quality, etc.)?

16. Is there potential funding the project proponent is seeking for the project?

17. Are there any funding gaps identified in the project?

18. Are there any identified partnerships?

19. Are there plans for addressing safety and security within the project limits?

20. Is the project identified in any existing plans/policies (federal, state, local)?

21. Has the city in which the project will be located adopted any of the policies described in the Community Stabilization Toolkit?

22. Is there a group the project intends to serve (e.g., residents, youth, pedestrians, cyclists, artists, equestrians, bird watchers)?

23. Is the project in a disadvantaged community?

24. Will the project create any potential negative impacts on the local community?

25. Does the project address the concerns of equity, displacement, and environmental justice?

26. Has the project been engaging the community in its development process?

27. Has the project consulted with the Native nations it intends to build land on?

28. Are there future plans for community engagement?

29. Has the project received feedback?

Building Blocks

The LLARRP developed a vast array of Building Blocks – modular concepts and strategies – that can be assembled in a variety of ways to develop specific projects, policies, and programs. Please indicate the Building Blocks that the proposed project intends to use and list all elements of the project that apply, including how they apply and their location on the site.

These Building Blocks prioritize project features in relation to water and environment such as water resiliency, sustainability, flood risk and floodplain reclamation.
