The videos describe the Master Plan process, showcase many of the key participants, and give an overview of the design created in partnership with the community of Silver Lake.

Silver Lake Reservoir Complex Master Plan (SLRCMP)

The SLRCMP is an exciting opportunity for the community to help guide the repurposing of the reservoir complex and surrounding site as we seek to protect its unique character, while envisioning a community gathering space that blends urban wilderness with recreational spaces. The Master Plan will guide improvements and protection of the reservoirs, and seek to balance its historic character, its use as a community gathering place, its strategic location within the Silver Lake community, and its unique blend of both functional and recreational spaces.

The project originated March 27, 2018, when the City Council approved a Memorandum of Agreement between the Bureau of Engineering (BOE) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) (http://www.ladwp.com/slrc), which allowed Engineering to begin the Silver Lake Reservoir Complex Master Plan process. We invite you to join us at a series of Community Workshops over the next year to provide your valuable feedback to the design team. We will be updating this project webpage throughout the master plan process as we develop our shared vision.

The planning process is being led by Engineering, with the support of Council Districts 13 and 4, and in coordination with LADWP.
