Los Angeles River
The Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan (LARRMP) was approved by the City Council in May 2007, establishing the River Project Office in the Bureau of Engineering to oversee the implementation of the LARRMP and to coordinate future projects within the river corridor. Contact Claire Bowin (Claire.bowin@lacity.org) for specific information about the Department of City Planning’s activities and projects relative to the LARRMP.



  • Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan

    • The LARRMP sets forth a 50-year vision that initiates a transformation of the Los Angeles River from a concrete-lined flood control channel to a community amenity. A 32-mile greenway would include bicycle and walking paths along with pocket parks, the development of a functional riparian corridor, and innovative green infrastructure improvements to capture and treat water from stormflow events.

    • The Los Angeles River Improvement Overlay District (LA-RIO) provides design guidelines for properties within proximity to the City’s many river bodies. The LA-RIO includes watershed, urban design, and mobility guidelines for new projects within approximately one-half mile of the Los Angeles River.
