AREA FUNDING APPROVED
The L.A. County Board of Supervisors on Jan. 19 approved funding of $150,000 for a recreational trail in La Crescenta.
The trail, 1/3 of a mile in length, will begin at 2700 Orange Avenue and extend along the Eagle Canyon Flood Control Channel toward the northwest boundary of Two Strike Park. The project will include signage, fencing and gates to close off access when safety issues occur. The trail will end in the residential area along Rosemont and Pine Glen. Total cost is estimated at $530,000.
The total amount approved involved nearly $2 million in trail funds for the 5th Supervisorial District, including $125,000 for work in Cherry Canyon, $123,472 toward the Catalina Verdugo Trail in the San Rafael Hills and $150,000 for the Annandale Canyon Trail access project.
In addition, the board of supervisors approved added funding for a project to improve Crescenta Valley Park. The added money, $92,000, will help pay for the replacement of a restroom building. The overall project, funded at $246,000, involved reroofing of the recreation building, installation of new picnic tables, barbeques and drinking fountains, and other building refurbishments.
The restroom, with a total cost of $213,600, will involve purchase and installation of a prefabricated structure and will be completed by April of this year.
