About the Event

The County of Los Angeles is updating its Los Angeles River Master Plan. It is a comprehensive approach covering all 51 miles of the River. The effort was launched to update the original 1996 master plan, synthesizing more recent ideas for portions of the River and bringing a comprehensive vision to the transformation of the L.A. River. To do this, L.A. County is partnering with community organizations throughout the region to incorporate your needs, concerns, hopes, and the vision for the entire L.A. River.

The panel discussion will take place in the theater from 11:00 a.m. to approximately 12:30 p.m., followed by opportunities to visit outreach tables in the museum plaza.
