Griffith Park Planning

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Sometimes we can be a little lazy about performing our civic duties when it comes to attending community meetings, and when we're exhorted to attend a night with the Griffith Park Draft Master Plan Working Group to discuss transportation issues, we're ashamed at our lack of initial enthusiasm. However, our interest is piqued when we notice that there doesn't seem to be much information about tonight's meeting on either the main LA Parks site, their new blog, or the Griffith Park site. Why doesn't the Parks Dept. want people coming to this meeting?

The current plan on the docket is a bit daunting to wade through, and it's hard to know if the proposed tramways and "theme zones" and multi-level parking lots are a good or a bad thing, but it would be nice to know when these meetings discussing the future of the US's largest municipal park are held. Since you might not find the information elsewhere, we at LAist would like to help you out - it's tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Griffith Park Ranger Station Community Meeting Room, 4730 Crystal Springs Drive.
