Reseda Blvd Great Streets Improvements
Posted by Councilmember Englander on September 30, 2016 at 6:22 PM
This week work began on improvements to the landscaped median on the Reseda Blvd Great Street between Gresham and Parthenia. When complete, this stretch will feature the City's first "Zerogation" (as in zero irrigation) median.
The Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (LASan) was out this week preparing the median for the coming improvements, including a mulch and grating system that complements the new streetscape while promoting the capture of stormwater and runoff.
Seeded with a native, drought-tolerant mix, the median will feature plants that can actually be sustained with very little or intermittent water and in dry, hot conditions. The project is a pilot and if successful, will help the City to attract grant funding for similar projects in other neighborhoods.
The Northridge Sparkle Campaign will provide the maintenance for the median amenities, including a brand new flag and flag pole donated by Don Larson and Northridge Sparkle with contributions from the Northridge South and Northridge West Neighborhood Councils.
