Community Matters: The Puente Hills Landfill

The Puente Hills Landfill is scheduled to close by November 1, 2013. When this happens, any portion of landfill in which fill has been placed will be designated as open space for recreational use. This future park will be managed by the LA County Department of Parks and Recreation. The LA County Sanitation Districts will retain ownership over the land and will continue to maintain and operate any environmental control systems for protection of public health.

In order to establish the appropriate funding for development, operation, and maintenance of the future park, the LA County Sanitation Districts is currently working with the Department of Parks and Recreation and a consultant to develop options for what type of park may be built on the site. The options being considered range from very passive uses (nature observation and hiking) to very active uses (a golf course).

In the near future, five conceptual plans for park use will be presented to the community for their comments and input. The conceptual plans will be refined according to the comments received. Costs estimates associated with each plan will be prepared after the plans have been revised. The Final Feasibility Study report is estimated to be finished and released to the public by the end of 2008. Final decision of what the ultimate use of the park would be will be made when the Department of Parks and Recreation prepares their park Master Plan.

Keep a look out in your local papers and on the Hacienda Heights Improvement Association’s website for more information. The Department of Regional Planning will also update you on news about the landfill as it becomes available.
