MCA receives City of Los Angeles permit in 2016 to construct People's Paths
The People's Path is a community plan begun more than 50 years ago. Over the years many homeowners and MCA constructed and maintained paths and split rails on the City's parkways (right-of-way area) along the road, in the lower area of Mandeville Canyon Road.
In 2015 old maps were located. In 2016 MCA presented a master plan to the City of LA to complete the construction of a continuous and unobstructed path from the entrance of the Canyon to the 2700 block. The purpose of the plan isn't only for pedestrians to walk but to improve overall safety & sight-lines, enhance property values & quality of life, and protect the ambiance of the unique character of Mandeville Canyon. The City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works approved the master plan and provided MCA with permits and the authority to build within the City parkways. MCA works with new and old homeowners to make improvements to the parkway area and can assist with permits per the City-approved People's Path specifications. In some cases MCA will fund and oversee the installation of paths and split rail fencing as funds are available. Contact info@theMCA.org to receive more information.
New homeowners engaged in remodels or new construction are required by the City to construct the paths per an approved design.
