On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted in support of placing a parks funding measure on the November ballot.
Festivities included a youth baseball clinic and Dodgers RBI Day celebration.
The Proposed Project is a long range master plan that over time would develop a portion of what was formerly the largest landfill in the western United States into a regional park, providing recreation and open space for the greater Los Angeles area. The County of Los Angeles would create a new regional park uniquely situated at the western end of the Puente Hills on a large industrial closed landfill site. Of the 600 acres of fill within the site boundaries, which includes the landfill slopes and flat landfill caps, approximately 117 acres of top deck fill area would be the focus over time for the majority of formal park development (or approximately 10 percent of the site’s total acreage).
The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation invites you to the fifth and final community workshop for this exciting project. The project team will present an overview of the Draft Puente Hills Landfill Park Master Plan and the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). The vision of the park master plan is to transform the closed landfill into a scenic and recreational asset for the region.
