      Good news! The Los Angeles City Council unanimously passed the
      following resolution (apparently on June 24th 1998) which sets the
      wheels rolling for a Taylor Yard feasibility study funded by the State
      Coastal Conservancy:

      WHEREAS, the City of Los Angeles wishes to meet the community's
      flood management requirements by protecting the downtown Los Angeles
      area from 100-year flooding due to inadequate channel capacity along the
      Los Angeles River; and

      WHEREAS, the City wishes to create park and natural areas along
      the Los Angeles River for the benefit of the residents of the areas
      adjoining the Los Angeles River; and

      WHEREAS, the City wishes to restore, where feasible, natural
      habitat areas along the Los Angeles River; and

      WHEREAS, the City wishes to support the goal of a "greenway"
      along the Los Angeles River, made up of parks, natural areas and trails;
      and

      WHEREAS, the City wishes to improve the water quality in the Los
      Angeles River by treating urban runoff; and

      WHEREAS, the City wishes to develop a multi-use flood management
      facility at the Taylor Yard; and

      WHEREAS, the Los Angeles River watershed is a coastal watershed;
      and

      WHEREAS, the State Coastal Conservancy (Conservancy) is a state
      agency charged with protecting and enhancing the resources of the
      California coast and coastal wetlands; and

      WHEREAS, the Conservancy wishes to develop a feasibility study
      for a multi-use flood detention basing a [sic - probably should be
      "basin at"] Taylor Yard that includes wetland habitat and park and open
      space areas; and

      WHEREAS, the City and Conservancy desire to develop a
      demonstration project at Taylor Yard that can be a model for flood
      management, environmental restoration and the "greening" of the Los
      Angeles River for the benefit of the entire community.

      NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council hereby
      requests the State Coastal Conservancy to prepare a feasibility study
      for a multi-use flood detention basin in Taylor Yard; and authorize City
      staff to work with the Conservancy to prepare such a study.

      (presented by Mike Hernandez, seconded by Jackie Goldberg)
