SPL-2014-CHB-15-Hansen Dam Overlook Parking Area - Proposed Improvements

Published Oct. 10, 2014
Expiration date: 11/21/2014

The City of Los Angeles is requesting approval to implement improvements at the ‘Overlook’ Parking Lot at the Hansen Dam Recreation Area, off of Osborne Street, Los Angeles, CA.  The area is a portion of lands leased from the Corps of Engineers to City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation and Parks, at Hansen Recreation Area.  The proposal is considered a predominantly maintenance project to improve public safety.  Current condition of heavily worn vehicle space striping and other worn features, results in disorganized public access/egress and in haphazard and sometimes illegal parking and other dangerous conditions at the Osborne Street parking lot which is a destination for recreation users at the top of Hansen Dam.  This can create congestion and safety issues. Because the western Hansen Dam locale is an important outdoor recreation area, the improvements are proposed for implementation under existing Proposition A funds.

The Corps invites the general public to submit comments on potential environmental impacts that could result from implementation of the proposal. The public comment period on preparation of an EA and FONSI, for the proposal described above, will extend from October 9 - November 10, 2014, and the Corps will consider all submissions received on or postmarked by August 9.
