Chatsworth Park South Update
Posted by Councilmember Englander on June 19, 2015 at 12:00 PM
This week the Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks Commission awarded a bid for the cleanup of Chatsworth Park South.
Due to the identification of lead and other contamination at the site, Chatsworth Park South has been closed to the public since February 2008 . My office has worked closely with the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks to ensure the clean-up moves forward as quickly as possible.
Prior to releasing an RFP for the clean-up, the Department of Recreation and Parks created design documents modeled off of community recommendations for the park, after remediation, with the intention to preserve the current natural feel of the park. The design features accessible ADA-compliant paths, preserves an existing stream bed and incorporates bioswails engineered to attract fauna to the site.
Returning Chatsworth Park South to use for the community is of the utmost importance to me. If you would like to contact my office with regard to this site, please contact Megan Cottier at email@example.com or 818-882-1212.
