The LA River Stories project is a series video recorded interviews that capture people’s experiences with the Los Angeles River today as well as their hopes for it in the future. Unlike a general survey, these interviews are unscripted so as to create a more comprehensive account of the interviewee’s unique perspective from their perspective.
At the third meeting, the Steering Committee reviewed the revised draft vision and goals for the LA River Master Plan, and provided additional feedback for continued fine-tuning. The Steering Committee also heard an update on the extensive community input from the online survey and meetings, and they continued discussion of the inventory research conducted by project team. Inventory topics for the third meeting included water resources, access and security, homelessness, and operations and maintenance, and the Steering Committee shared insight on additional opportunities and issues to explore and potential data sources. The meeting concluded with a public comment opportunity where several community members voiced perspectives about the vision, goals, and inventory.
