From Friends on the Los Angeles River:
We began this call last year, and now hear it echoed by the agencies and decision-makers who will help us realize River restoration right here in LA. We’re pushing for equitable public access and ecological restoration on our River.
The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for CASITAS LOFTS has now been published, and we’ve been granted our comment letter extension! This gives us – along with our community supporters and partner organizations – until the end of March to submit our comments. READ ALL ABOUT THE PROJECT on our website folar.org/casitas
Save the date for March 4 and register for our workshop, when we will break down the contents of the DEIR and issues with the project. Here’s what to expect:
Learn the scale of the developer’s proposal – it’s big!
Break out into groups to examine specific impacts of this project on Nature, Traffic, Floodplain Management and its woeful unaffordability.
Prepare letters, submit comments online and call local leaders to tell them we oppose this project and why.
FoLAR is co-hosting this workshop with Clockshop, NRDC and LA River State Park Partners.
