UPDATE 09/12: The 9/16 meeting has been postponed. Stay tuned for the rescheduling information.
Last week, several community leaders got together for a meeting to discuss the future of Paseo del Mar and the White Point Landslide area. The City of Los Angeles has hired URS/AECOM to design a rebuild of Paseo del Mar in the location where it was previously (not re-routed through the White Point Nature Preserve). The estimated cost of this project is $50 million, among the highest budgeted long-term options announced in June 2012.
URS Corporation and the City of L.A. Bureau of Engineer Geotechnical Division will be holding a Community Briefing on the Paseo del Mar (White Point) Landslide Permanent Restoration Project next week.
This is a pre-design meeting that will be followed up by two yet-to-be-scheduled additional meetings that will discuss design options and then the chosen design. Geological reports must be completed before the design stage begins. The design process and feasibility studies have been funded but funding has not been identified for the restoration project.
The meeting will be held Wednesday, September 16, 2015 from 7pm–9pm and is open to the public. RSVP to Lacey Adams at 310-732-1112 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
