21 Infrastructure Goals for South Mar Vista – 1 thru 7

These are not SoMar vetted projects but a personal list of 21 created by
Christopher McKinnon November 2010 revised January 11, 2011

1-7 below 8-14 and 15-21 will post later – Not in order of priority!

1. MAR VISTA OVAL GUTTERS / STREETS – Find funding for the curb and gutter restoration of North and South Oval in order for Bureau of Street Services to rebuild the roadway surfaces in a more timely manner. Include possible Green Street improvements for the curb and parkways.

2. HISTORIC PALM TREES – Nominate the 100 year old Canary Island Palm trees in the parkway that encircles the Mar Vista Oval as a Historic Cultural Monument in order to be allowed to replace the trees as they reach the end of their lifespan and to protect the remaining that gave the development its original name of “Palm Place”

3. HISTORIC SIGN POSTS – Nominate the original street signs and signposts with decorative caps that remain around the Mar Vista Oval as a Historic Cultural Monument in order to be allowed to preserve existing and replace missing with suitable lookalike replacements.

4. FIRE STATION PLANT REINSTALL – Find funding for the replacement of the removed plants and vines around the perimeter of new Fire Station #62 with suitable California native and equivalent drought tolerant vines and plants which may include repair or replacement of current damaged drip irrigation system

5. MAINTAIN FIRE STATION PLANTS – Find funding to supplement the LAFD continuing maintenance of any new and existing plants around the perimeter of new Fire Station #62 including irrigation control and maintenance including weed removal, appropriate Coral tree trimming and litter pickup. Investigate stormwater collection and mitigation.

6. LIBRARY PLANTS MAINTAIN – Find funding to supplement the Department of Rec and Parks for additional maintenance of existing plants and trees around the perimeter of the Mar Vista Library including irrigation control and maintenance including weed removal and litter pickup. Investigate stormwater collection and mitigation.

7. POST OFFICE TREES/PLANTS – Identify the federal or USPS department for maintenance of the trees and irrigated planted medians within the parking lot of the Mar Vista Post office and demand that they be repaired and have continued maintenance. Investigate stormwater collection and mitigation.
