Wilmington Seeks Community Input

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Wilmington Waterfront Development Project will be the subject of two community meetings hosted by the Port of Los Angeles.

The meetings will allow the public to hear an overview and status update on the project, including a review of the environmental document for the Avalon and Fries Street Segment closure, information about the entry plaza sundial for the Avalon Promenade and Gateway Project and naming development projects along the waterfront.

The meetings will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on July 25 and Sept.12 at Banning’s Landing Community Center in Wilmington.

Once completed, the Wilmington Waterfront project will feature a promenade, plaza for pedestrians, parking lot, and realignment of Water Street next to the railroad tracks and parking area northwest of Banning's Landing Community Center. The Avalon Promenade and Gateway Project will include a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks and Water Street to provide safe public access to the waterfront.
