Next Steps Announced for Silver Lake Reservoir Master Plan Process

Silver Lake Reservoir

On March 27, 2018, City Council approved a Memorandum of Agreement between the Bureau of Engineering (Engineering) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), which allows us to begin the Silver Lake Reservoir Complex Master Plan process. The planning process is being led by Engineering, with the support of Council Districts 13 and 4, and in coordination with LADWP.

The Master Plan will guide improvements and protection of the reservoirs, and seek to balance its historic character, its use as a community gathering place, its strategic location within the Silver Lake community, and its unique blend of both functional and recreational spaces.

MASTER PLAN PROCESS - NEXT STEPS

The Master Plan process will take place over a number of years. The first steps in the process will support the hiring of a consultant and the development of the project scope of work:

1.            On May 1st, we will hold a Community Open House where we will discuss the scope of work and the consultant RFP, along with the Master Plan schedule.

2.            Following the Community Open House, the City will also post the draft scope of work online for a period of three weeks to give everyone an opportunity to provide suggestions and comments.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Community involvement is critical to the success of the master plan process. Given the high level of interest in the community, once a consultant is selected, we will be conducting a variety of outreach activities to allow residents and other stakeholders to share their ideas and concerns on the Plan.
