Gateway Cities and Rivers Urban Greening Master Plan

Connecting Communities through Nature

 

                                                           

The Watershed Conservation Authority in partnership with North East Trees and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments—and as part of a vision of “Connecting Communities Through Nature”—is developing an urban greening master plan for the Gateway Cities and Lower LA and San Gabriel Rivers. 

The Gateway Greening Plan seeks to expand, develop, and enhance greenways, parks, open space, and green infrastructure both along our river corridors and throughout our urban communities. The plan is wide in scope, with focus on guiding greening efforts, collaboration, and funding in the region. We are working to promote a common vision and direction for greener cities working with functioning natural systems within 26 cities and unincorporated areas that make up the Gateway Cities in the central and lower LA basin.

This plan is envisioned as a living document hosted on an online platform for the empowerment of the public, cities, agencies, and professionals.
