East Fork Project: Public Meetings

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-8-11-19-am

Public meetings are being held this this week in Baldwin Park and Arcadia to discuss the East Fork Project. You can help us by providing public input!

We’re working with the US Forest Service (USFS) and The Watershed Conservation Authority (WCA) to make sure that improvements to the East Fork serve our communities and protect our precious public lands.

We want to improve the area for recreation and also protect water and wildlife. Currently there is a shortage of trails and safe access points, and water quality and aquatic life are threatened by illegal dams, mechanical mineral dredging, and disease.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 16, 6-8:30 pm
WHERE: Julia McNeill Senior Center, Celebration Hall, 4100 Baldwin Park Blvd, Baldwin Park, CA

WHEN: Saturday, November 19, 11 am-1:30 pm
WHERE: Angeles National Forest HQ, 701 North Saint Anita Ave, Arcadia

They are seeking comments from the public on the following matters:

What environmental issues should be analyzed?

Are there alternatives that should be evaluated that will meet the purpose and need for the project?

What mitigation measures would help avoid or minimize any negative impacts?

Written comments will also be accepted via email at commentspacificsouthwest-angeles@fs.fed.us. Comments must be received no later than November 30, 2016.
