Last Fall the Arroyo Seco Foundation and more than a dozen community organizations united together at the LA River Rally in support of Alternative 20, the most ambitious proposal of the US Army Corps of Engineers' ARBOR Plan to restore the Los Angeles River.
It didn't look very hopeful. The national office of the Corps seemed intent on going with a more modest proposal, but united community support and Mayor Garcetti's dynamic leadership turned the tide.
On May 28, 2014 the Corps announced that they will back Alt 20. It's a tremendous victory for the future of the Los Angeles River.
