Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant Personnel And Multi-Use Facility Project

An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) is available for review for the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant (Tillman) Personnel and Multi-Use Facility project. The proposed project involves the replacement of an existing 1,250 square foot temporary trailer structure used by Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant Japanese Garden staff, docents and gift shop with a permanent 17,892 square-foot personnel and multi-use facility building. The building would house the existing employees, docents and the gift shop as well as include meeting and conference rooms and exhibit space. Exhibits currently housed within the Administration Building would be relocated to the new Personnel and Multi-Use Facility building. Following completion of construction the remaining undeveloped portion of the parking lot would be reconfigured to accommodate approximately 113 vehicles. Although the proposed project could result in a significant effect on biological resources, there would not be a significant effect as a result of implementation of the identified mitigation measure.

The Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration can be viewed from the links below and is available for review beginning April 19, 2012 at the following locations:

  • Van Nuys Branch Library, 6250 Sylmar Avenue, Van Nuys
