New construction plans for the L.A. River will cost over $1 Billion

New construction plans for the L.A. River will cost over $1 Billion

  Talks about changing the L.A. River to a more acceptable place for fish and other wildlife to live in could become a reality.  Mayor Eric Garcetti has been aggressively talking with Congress about this for some time now. He hopes to gain more support on the idea in making the L.A. River into an actual river again. This 11 mille river idea would not only better the community, but better the economy and the environment.   11 miles is a start, but the bigger picture is to create a 51 mile L.A. River. At first The Army Corps of Engineers fell in love with the idea but only gave the budget $453 million. More ideas were thrown around and approved Mayor Eric Garcetti $1.08 billion idea. How will this get funded you ask? Congress has the ultimate say if the project will get funded but if and when it does, The Army Corps, Department of the Interior and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. State and local sources will help out too.   This big move with be hopefully the one of many big restorations in the state and hopefully, the world. Getting our ecology back on track and making this world a cleaner one. Garcetti’s big push to get the river flowing again not only has residents support but has Presidents Obamas support.  “As I argued in the White House over and over, it’s the right thing for the ecology; it’s the right thing for the economy and for kids growing up being separated from downtown by a concrete flood control channel.”     Source:...

Allumette closing its doors June 28th

Allumette closing its doors June 28th

Allumette owners Charles Kelly and Bill DiDonna have released a date for the closing of their restaurant. June 28th will be the last time you can grab a meal or two from this Silver Lake establishment. After a year and a half of serving tasty dishes, it is time to say good bye. The combination of their Sunset location mixed in with pricey plates left a bitter taste with Silver Lake residents. It seems that cheap tacos are the king of the crop around here. Death by tacos you could say. Here is what management had to say. “A restaurant like Allumette requires tremendous and consistent effort in sourcing and producing the food and drink that we have been celebrated for. We took a calculated, but substantial risk opening a restaurant like this in Echo Park and ultimately we just couldn’t find the customer support necessary to sustain our business without compromising the guest experience. So, it is with bittersweet emotions that we announce that Allumette will have its final day of service on Saturday, June 28th. It has been a great ride, filled with exhilarating food, spectacular cocktails and definitive dining moments. We are all thrilled to have been part of something so special and know that all of our hard work and commitment to Allumette was well worth it. We remain friends and colleagues and are each excited for our next chapter in the ever-evolving Los Angeles dining community.”   No word if the establishment is going to relocate.         Source:...
