Collective Efforts is a partnership between the Cal Poly Pomona Department of Landscape Architecture 606 Studio, the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy (RMC), and the Conservation Corps of Long Beach (CCLB) that builds on the momentum to revitalize the Los Angeles River. Rather than a traditional large-scale master plan, it presents an alternative approach to regeneration that concentrates on local interventions that address the river¹s potential for improving public landscape and the quality of life for river-adjacent communities. Focusing on the Gateway Cities region of southern Los Angeles County, Collective Efforts utilized grass roots participatory design methods to guide community development.
