The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation invites the public to provide input regarding regional and rural park and recreation needs for future planning and funding.
By News Desk
LA County Parks is inviting the public to help future planning and funding allocation to regional and rural park and recreation needs. As a focused update to the 2016 Los Angeles Countywide Parks Needs Assessment, this effort is called the Regional and Rural Edition. Specifically, it will identify, analyze, map, and document:
- The need for Regional facilities, including regional parks, beaches and lakes, trails, and natural areas and open spaces; and
- The park needs of Rural communities which are primarily located in the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, and Santa Monica Mountains.
Designed to be extensive and inclusive, the community engagement and outreach process was launched by LA County Parks in March 2021 in partnership with other County departments, community-based organizations, and other groups. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on in-person meetings and group gatherings, the process will consist primarily of online methods of engagement and physically distanced activities, including the following:
- Project Website Updates
- Social Media, including photo competitions
- Phone Calls
- Focus Groups
Norma E. García-Gonzalez, Director of LA County Parks and Recreation, said:
We encourage all Los Angeles County residents to participate and get involved. Their input will help inform planning and funding allocation for regional parks, open space, and trails.
