Parking project begins with bidding process for Wilderness Park
This project is currently out to bid, with a bid opening date of Tuesday, June 26. This project will accommodate approximately 137 parking spaces encompassing nearly 1.7 acres at the north end of Mills Avenue using Pomona Valley Protective Agency (PVPA) property. Access to the park will be made available during construction, except for limited periods for grading and paving. Notifications will be made in advance for any closures. Construction is estimated to start early August. This project is partially funded by a Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Space District Grant. The primary construction for this project will be completed in October and also calls for the installation of parking meters.
The grant calls for utilizing the California Conservation Corps (CCC) for the installation of the landscaping, which will occur later this fall. The CCC is a state agency that puts together young people and the environment, to the benefit of both. Corps members—young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25—sign up for a year of working outdoors to improve California’s natural resources.
