City Reaches Significant Milestone for Taylor Yard G2 River Park Project
Bureau of Engineering Releases DRAFT FINAL Taylor Yard G2 River Park Project Implementation Feasibility Report (IFR) for Public Comment
LOS ANGELES (February 11, 2021) – The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering (Engineering) has completed the DRAFT FINAL Taylor Yard G2 River Park Project Implementation Feasibility Report (IFR). The report is now open for public comment with comments due by close of business (5:00 pm) on Friday, April 2, 2021.
The IFR, also known as the pre-design report, is the culmination of several years of efforts by Engineering and its partners to study the 42-acre G2 parcel on the LA River, and decide on next steps for the project. The completion of the IFR is also a major step forward in the continuing implementation of the City’s Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan, which was adopted in 2007.
For nearly three years, Engineering worked closely with the community and partners to conduct intensive study of the contamination levels on the parcel and develop conceptual designs for its future projects. Engineering also led a robust community engagement plan that included design workshops, tours, community events, focus groups, discussions, surveys and canvassing.
The IFR compiles the site research and analyses and assesses the potential and challenges the site presents. It also details the design concepts, proposed public uses, environmental site characterizations, and the path forward to create meaningful wildlife habitat, the foundation for moving forward with future projects.
