San Gabriel River Discovery Center Wins Approval

No surprise here, since the approving body was created specifically to build the Discovery Center.

The SGV Tribune story in advance of this meeting kind of made it sound like it was a "discussion" rather than an "approval" meeting.

Regardless, with the rain coming down by the start of the meeting, I didn't venture down to my old stomping grounds to make it to the meeting. I do hope the center get built, and that, along with other proposed improvements to the Whittier Narrows area, will help increase public utilization of this valuable semi-natural resource in our backyard.

Actual construction of the Discovery Center is probably still somewhere off in the future, since the bonds they would need to issue to finance construction would be difficult to sell in this economy.
