Spurred by the the revitalization efforts underway at the lower reaches of the L.A. River, California State Assemblymember Member Raul Bocanegra is looking to replicates these successes at two of its tributaries.

Last month, the Democrat representing Pacoima introduced AB 466, which would allow for the creation of a working group to develop a restoration plan for the Tujunga Wash and the Pacioma Wash.  The group would include representatives from the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, the County of Los Angeles, the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, Los Angeles and San Fernando, and elected officials who represent surrounding areas.

A page from Bocanegra's website notes that the waterways are "two of the largest tributaries to the L.A. River," and pass through multiple low-income and disadvantaged communities.

A motion from City Council President Herb Wesson pushes for the City to officially support Bocanegra's legislation.
