Zoo presents information on vision plan at virtual meeting
The Los Angeles Zoo is holding a virtual public meeting on Monday, Aug. 15, at 6 p.m. for the Los Angeles Zoo Vision Plan.
The Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Bureau of Engineering has prepared an environmental impact report for the proposed Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens Vision Plan, which encompasses the entire 133-acre zoo property. The proposed vision plan would guide future development and modernization of the zoo during the next 20 years, include a comprehensive redesign and redevelopment to replace outdated buildings and infrastructure, and upgrade animal care and guest amenities. Improvements could include new and revitalized immersive exhibit space and animal habitats; new visitor-serving buildings; expanded and modernized administrative and maintenance service facilities; circulation improvements for access roads, pedestrian walkways and paths; an enhanced entry way and plaza; and new parking facilities.
