My letter in support of Alternative 20 for the Los Angeles River


Mayor Eric Garcetti and I recently hosted Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy on a tour of the Los Angeles River. We had a great visit -- and saw an egret, a heron, and a hawk. It was a wonderful day!

Revitalizing the LA River  --and revitalizing our own vision of what the River can become-- has been a decades-long effort. We have great expectations and we are standing together in this effort. 

Although Alternative 20 in the US Army Corps plan seems ambitious, it's really just a small piece to bring the River back to what it once was. 

I'm confident that the River will be improved in previously unimaginable ways since it was channelized with concrete. 

I stand in solidarity with our local, state, and federal leaders who support Alternative 20 in the US Army Corps plan. I submitted this letter in support of Alternative 20, and I wanted to share that letter with you here
