Thoughts on the River: Eric Garcetti
In an exclusive interview immediately following the announcement of the Army Corps of Engineers' recommendation for the $1 billion plan for the L.A. River, Mayor Garcetti told us why the river is so important to the city's past and future, and to him personally; his thoughts on the NELA Riverfront Collaborative (of which we are the media partner); as well as an insight into the city's relationship to the federal government when it comes to projects like the L.A. River revitalization that could benefit the country's economy as a whole.
