The Link Initiative - Creating open space in the City of El Monte
Active San Gabriel Valley (ActiveSGV) and The Trust for Public Land (TPL) are working on a community outreach-based planning effort to augment existing planning and development work in the City of El Monte. The goal is to prioritize the creation of new/renovated open space and active transportation opportunities throughout the Ramona Boulevard Corridor and the City of El Monte. ActiveSGV and TPL are working with residents, parents, community stakeholders, and the City of El Monte to identify priority projects and available funding sources to get those projects built. The proposed plan will create a clear path forward to holistically support El Monte residents by leveraging existing public funds to increase livability and sustainability throughout the City for children, families, and members of the community.
