The City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering is developing a Vision Plan for the Sepulveda Basin.

Between January 2023 and spring 2024, the City is leading a community-based design process and we’d like your help. Please help us understand your preferences on the alternative ideas and enhancements by completing the second survey in the Vision Plan process.

We’d like your feedback on the conceptual-design alternatives and enhancements for the Sepulveda Basin Vision Plan.
All alternatives include the same multi-modal transportation options and cultural opportunities. There are some unique habitat and recreational programming opportunities in each alternative. Help us refine and prioritize these by indicating your level of support for each.

ALL ALTERNATIVES

Question Title

* 1. De-channelize and naturalize the LA River and its tributaries and creeks, including Bull Creek, Woodley Creek, Encino Creek, Haskell Creek, Hayvenhurst Channel and Velodrome Creek.

Question Title

* 2. Traffic calming improvements and green street features like trees, permeable pavement and stormwater capture on Woodley Avenue.

Question Title

* 3. Traffic calming improvements, new LA River bridge and green street features on Burbank Boulevard.

Question Title

* 4. Increase active mobility with loop trails inside and around the Basin, an LA River bikeway, community trails that allow access to trail systems from different neighborhoods and increase access points into the Basin.

Question Title

* 5. Increase active recreation to include additional soccer fields, pickleball courts, playgrounds, and a new dog park.

Question Title

* 6. Add a cultural amenity as shown above.

Below is a list of features and elements unique to each alternative.
THE WILDLANDS

Question Title

* 8. De-channelize and naturalize the LA River to allow free-flowing water with significantly widened floodplain and significant riparian areas.

Question Title

* 9. Increase the Basin capacity for flood risk by 2,200 acre feet by removing 2.54 million cubic yards of soil.

Question Title

* 10. Increase additional facilities to include LA River kayak launch pavilions and three shade pavilions.

Question Title

* 11. Relocate model airplane flight field to another Valley site.

Question Title

* 12. Modernize golf courses to include 36 total holes in the basin. This would change golf courses to one 18-hole course, two 9-hole courses with a connected path for extended play across courses, more riparian habitat around them for better flood capacity, and provide more challenging and interesting terrain.

Question Title

* 13. Additional comments on The Wildlands

THE TERRACED FLOODPLAIN

Question Title

* 14. De-channelize and naturalize the LA River to allow free-flowing water with a significantly widened floodplain and terraced areas for different habitat types.

Question Title

* 15. Increase the Basin capacity for flood risk by 2,000 acre feet by removing 2.44 million cubic yards of soil.

Question Title

* 16. Modernize golf courses and include 45 total holes in the basin. This would upgrade Woodley Lakes to an 18-hole championship course and maintain a 27-hole course south of the river with a connected path for extended play across courses.

Question Title

* 17. Upgrade model airplane flight field.

Question Title

* 18. Additional comments on The Terraced Floodplain
