This week, my office worked in partnership with the Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment to introduce the new concept plan for the Lopez Canyon Green Space near the intersection of Lopez Canyon Rd. and Paxton St.
Following the closure of the Lopez Canyon Landfill, the Bureau of Sanitation has been working to develop lands surrounding the area for recreational use. The Lopez Canyon Green Space has been in dire need of improvements, and I pushed for an increase in the budget to accommodate for these upgrades.
Two years ago, Sylmar High School Students in Steve List’s Agriculture class entered into a competition to design the concept plan. At this week’s meeting, three students’ designs were chosen and awarded with scholarships from the Bureau of Sanitation. The concept plan will include two playgrounds (5 years and under, and 5-12 years), a dog park, various seasonal plants, upgraded lighting through LADWP, drip irrigation (environmentally friendly), and much more. At this meeting, residents had a chance to give their feedback on the plans and it will be finalized in the upcoming months.
