Beautifying Wilmington Industrial Park

October 17, 2008

In addition to the tremendous location conveniences it provides to businesses, the Wilmington Industrial Park is on its way to becoming a pleasant and beautiful place to work. CRA/LA is spearheading two projects to make this happen.

A landscaped gateway is proposed at the Alameda Street entrance to the business park, and upwards of 300 trees will be planted within the park in the coming months.

A New Gateway to Wilmington Industrial Park

Businesses and their customers will be welcomed to Wilmington Industrial Park by a new entrance gateway on Alameda Street at E Street.

The proposed new gateway will feature a landmark sign for the business park and landscaping that flanks the E Street entrance.  Landscaping will include Canary Island Pines and Liquid Amber trees, shrubs, ground cover and an automatic irrigation system so the plant life can thrive.

A Million Trees for LA; Hundreds for WIP

CRA/LA and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) have been working closely with the Mayor’s Office to plant new trees in Wilmington under the Mayor’s Million Trees Los Angeles (MTLA) initiative.  In the Wilmington Industrial Park, 300 of these trees will be planted in the public right of way along sidewalks.  Additionally, trees will be available to property owners at NO COST .  Owners will be responsible for maintaining and watering trees planted on their property.

WIP property owners can contact Kris Pak at (310) 732-5633 or kpak@cra.lacity.org to obtain information about obtaining trees by October 31, 2008.
