    Wednesday, December 11, 10:45 am - 11:45 am
    408 A
    Panel Discussions
    Track 1: Sustainability, Livability, Resiliency
    The Taylor Yard G2 River Park Project is a major step towards revitalization of the LA River. The transformation of this newly-acquired, 42-acre, river-adjacent site will create habitat restoration, support environmental cleanup and sustainability, and open more than one mile of direct river access to local communities. Discussion will showcase the successes and challenges with redeveloping the LA River. Attendees will also learn about Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan that aims to enhance existing communities by creating a safe environment with more open space, parks, trails, recreation, environmental restoration, riverfront living and commerce, new jobs, neighborhood identity, economic development, tourism, and civic pride. Taylor Yard G2 River Park is also a recipient of an EPA Cleanup Grant.
