Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project Suffers Another Delay

In 2004, the State Coastal Conservancy drafted an initial restoration schedule for the Ballona Wetlands that tentatively set the end of 2006 as a timeframe for publishing a draft enviromental analysis for the project pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Unfortunately, the process for developing the draft analysis did not even begin until 2012, and the release of the draft has been repeatedly delayed. Currently, the draft analysis is scheduled to be made public in mid-2017.
