Due to your help and support, the Los Angeles City Council Budget Committee is considering restoring the maintenance positions that were proposed to be cut next year. While the department still faces funding challenges in the long term, this is a good sign of support for Los Angeles parks.
Help us keep this momentum going by tweeting at, emailing, or calling to thank the Budget Committee members for their continued support of the safe, clean parks so essential to all Angelenos, and to urge the Mayor to sign a budget that fully funds the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
This is part of a longer conversation on how we make sure parks have the funding they really need to thrive – we’ll continue to send updates on progress and opportunities to take action.
