An LA River Park System: Reality or Dream?
Bikeways, hiking trails and parks are among the projects included in the new state budget of $88.5 million, and made possible by the passage in March of Propositions 12 and 13. D.J. Waldie, a city official in Lakewood and the author of "Holy Land: a Suburban Memoir", writes in a Los Angeles Times editorial that although the plans are modest, they are a good beginning to reclaiming the Los Angeles River for the use of the people of Los Angeles. There are problems involved, but our communities need the greening of the LA River, Waldie argues.
