WISHING TREE PARK - 204th Street & Budlong Avenue, West Carson
Construction associated with the Neighborhood Land Trust’s largest project to-date started on may 1st, 2019, with the installation of a sound barrier to reduce construction-related noise.
With the nearest park located over two miles away, Wishing Tree Park is highly anticipated by the local community, and will serve over 8,700 residents who live within a half-mile of the site. The park’s ribbon cutting event is expected in the fall of 2020.
Completed activities related to site preparation and environmental quality include:
· Bird nesting studies
· Archaeological training of all site workers
· Installation of noise reduction barrier
· Weed/plant removal in PREPARATION for underground work
· Installation of erosion-control measures (pictured below)
The LA Neighborhood land trust was fortunate to receive a donation of 34,000 + cubic yards of soil from a site owned by the la times. the soil will be used to create a two-foot soil cover/layer at the park site as requested by community residents and stakeholders.
TELACU Construction Management (the park’s General Contractor) has started deep excavation work to install underground piping/utility lines associated with sewage and water. These new lines will be linked to the site’s restrooms, general park irrigation and other facilities.
TELACU COnstruction Management has started to bring in clean soil to distribute across the park site after project utility work is completed. Deep excavation is coming to a close and storm water DEBRIS FILTRATION EQUIPMENT is ready to be installed.
Underground utility installation such as storm water, site electricity and water piping is underway. Clean soil is now being imported to the park site and stockpiled in preparation for site grading. Coordination with various easement holders and work to address unforeseen underground conditions is also in progress. We hosted the Del Amo Action Committee (DAAC) on two site visits with support from TELACU Construction Management to give community members more insight into construction progress. Community notices are being distributed with support from the DAAC team.
