In 2017, the Los Angeles City Council approved the purchase of the Taylor Yard G2 parcel. As a key area with restoration benefits and opportunities for revitalization, the location proved to be a desirable spot. This 42-acre parcel located at 2850 Kerr Street, within Council District 1, is adjacent to the soft-bottomed portion of the Los Angeles River. In that same year, the City moved ahead to remediate soil contamination of the parcel to industrial standards based on the existing California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) approved remedial action plan. The parcel was part of the former Union Pacific rail yard. Prior to the City's acquisition, LASAN's brownfields program used grant funding from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to conduct a Phase I ESA at the site that identified suspected and known soil contamination. Redevelopment efforts, including an extensive cleanup process are being led by the City's Bureau of Engineering (BOE). The brownfields program is working with BOE and DTSC, using various grant funding for additional environmental investigations at two contaminated areas within the Taylor Yard G2 Parcel. This hard work will result in a public park and green space which will greatly benefit human health and the environment.
