Trail Work Has Begun Around La Vina

Work has started on the trails around La Vina.  Here's the County's plan:

The County of Los Angeles is planning to conduct the necessary fieldwork to refine the layouts of the trails and to create the legal descriptions necessary to have the easements transferred from the La Viña Homeowners’ Association (HOA) to the County of Los Angeles and recorded as required in the Court’s final judgment. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. and Bellfree Contractors, Inc., a trail design and construction company, will conduct field visits to refine the trails layouts from July 7 through July 16, between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Representatives from the trail advocates and HOA may also participate in these field visits. Brush clearing may also need to be conducted on the proposed trail during these times. Any use of noise-generating motorized equipment for brush clearing will be conducted between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM.

Once the proposed trail routes are marked, on one day between July 18 and July 24, Sapphos Environmental, Inc. and the County of Los Angeles will walk the proposed trail layout with representatives from the HOA and trail advocates’ plaintiffs to give all parties an opportunity to observe the trails’ layout and identify any concerns. After the walk is completed, the County of Los Angeles will finalize the trail layout. Any unresolved issues between the parties will be brought to the judge for resolution.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works will then survey the trails from July 19, 2010 through August 13, 2010, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Once the fieldwork is completed, the County of Los Angeles will prepare a legal description of the trail easements. The Office of County Counsel will then submit to the judge a statement for the status conference scheduled for September 22, 2010.
