The NELA RC project build upon the growing momentum to transform the L.A. River and explores the possibilities of creating a “Riverfront District” in Northeast Los Angles.

The Northeast Los Angeles Riverfront Collaborative (NELA RC) is an innovative, interdisciplinary partnership that will capture the energy of the Los Angeles River (River) as a catalyst for implementing revitalization strategies and help NELA communities to thrive.

The NELA RC process builds upon the growing momentum of efforts already underway to transform the River, and aims to create a Riverfront District as a focal point of community revitalization, recreational activities, environmental stewardship, sustainable civic engagement, and economic growth for the entire city.

Over the course of a month, a kiosk pinned with postcards has begun its travels through Northeast Los Angeles asking the community, what do you want your Los Angeles River to be? Over 500 responses have been collected so far, above are some of those.
