PORT OF LOS ANGELES HOLDS SECOND COMMUNITY WORKSHOP FOR WILMINGTON MARINAS PLANNING STUDY DESIGN ALTERNATIVE IDEAS

WILMINGTON, Calif. — August 18, 2010 — After a successful initial meeting gathering community input on land use and infrastructure planning study for the Wilmington Marina area, the Port of Los Angeles is holding another community workshop on Saturday, September 11,  from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Wilmington Recreation Center Multipurpose Room, located at 325 Neptune Avenue in Wilmington.

The Wilmington Marinas Planning Study will recommend public infrastructure improvements to the marina area, and present a conceptual land use plan for a 33-acre site adjacent to the marinas on Anchorage Road to the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners.

Organized by the Port in partnership with a steering committee consisting of marina operators, marina boat owners, and Wilmington community group representatives, this second workshop will present design alternative ideas that resulted from input at the first community workshop meeting in June.  A third workshop scheduled for later this year will focus on a preferred conceptual plan. All community members are welcome and encouraged to participate in this important community project.
