Statewide this year, residents, organizations and public entities are recognizing the 100-year anniversary of the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, the engineering feat that transports the Owens Valleyâs water to Los Angeles.
In addition to a number of projects and events taking place locally, City of L.A. leaders have declared 2013 âThe Year of the Los Angeles Aqueduct.â
The declaration came in the form of a Proclamation approved by the L.A. City Council last Friday. It was presented by Councilmember Jose Huizar along with Councilmember Tom LaBonge.
Faced with many utilitarian and aesthetic choices, a volunteer citizens group continues to help shape the Warren Street Improvement project.
It is hoped that a community-collaborative design effort to renovate the Warren Street corridor will enhance the area visually and economically.
County leaders will hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. today to discuss progress on the Digital 395 project, the county snow removal policy and other county business.
The board will meet in the County Administrative Center in Independence and the meeting is open to the public. Traditionally, the board only meets three times in a five-Tuesday month by cancelling its last two meetings of the month. The board did not meet Tuesday, Jan. 1, taking New Yearâs Day as a holiday. To make up for that meeting, county leaders will be meeting today.
