As many of you have already noticed, work is well underway on the Fletcher Streetscape Project in Glassell Park. The project will not only beautify the area; it will make for a safer environment for children walking to school, and for the increasing number of bicyclists who ride through this corridor.

August 04

Friends:

As many of you know, the sharing economy has been a blessing for some, and a challenge for others.

Thanks to advancements in technology, and the introduction of websites like AirBnB, Homeaway and VRBO, entrepreneurs have created rental opportunities that in some cases help households make ends meet, but in other instances create a more transient atmosphere in neighborhoods. Then there are others who are marketing multiple units and renting their living spaces as if they were hotels.

LOS ANGELES RIVER - Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, along with park rangers from the Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority (MRCA), announced today the start of the LA River Recreation Zone beginning May 30.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers is permitting two recreation zones: one in the Glendale Narrows section in Elysian Valley (May 30 through September 25), and the other in the Sepulveda Basin at Lake Balboa (May 30 through September 30).

This is the third straight year for two separate recreation zones at the Los Angeles River, thanks in part to council action and support from Councilmember O’Farrell who chairs the City’s Arts, Parks, and LA River Committee.

“The Los Angeles River is so much more than a concrete channel to the ocean,” said Councilmember O’Farrell. “More people will enjoy the natural beauty of our urban waterway during the summer months, and I encourage Angelenos to become better acquainted with the river ecosystem and imagine its future possibilities as we prepare to restore the river to its original glory. ”
