Way back in 2008, L.A. Creek Freak wrote a post about Pacoima Beautiful’s plans for a greenway along the Pacoima Wash. They’ve been hard at work, organizing in the community and moving the project forward. At 7pm this Thurday June 10th 2010, Pacoima Beautiful is hosting a community meeting to get your ideas for a portion of the greenway project. Click here for the full bilingual flier with meeting details.

The meeting takes place at the San Fernando High School Cafeteria, at 11133 O’Melveny Ave, San Fernando, CA 91340. It’s actually two meetings in one. Beginning at 5pm, the first half focuses on a non-river but-nonetheless-wonderful park project at Fox Street and Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Then at 7pm the focus shifts to the Pacoima Wash.

Pacoima Beautiful wants your input on how to improve the existing but unwelcoming pedestrian bridge located at the end of Haddon Avenue. The small utilitarian bridge connects creekside communities with the adjacent Richie Valens Park and and with nearby San Fernando High School.

Here are photos of what the bridge looks like now: (all images in this post courtesy of Max Podemski of Pacoima Beautiful)

Come to the meeting on Thursday and give your ideas on how to improve the safety, appearance and functionality of the bridge, and how it can serve as key element of an emerging Pacoima Wash greenway.

Pacoima Beautiful is also working on planning and creating a small creekside park at the end of Gladstone Avenue.

Here’s a shot of the existing conditions:

Additional information on this meeting and this project is available by contacting Max Podemski at mpodemski {at} Creek Freak will follow-up with more details as these move forward.
