Calabasas to Hold Ribbon-Cutting
Ceremony for Malibu Hills Road Green Street Project
The public is invited to join Calabasas
Mayor Fred Gaines, his fellow Councilmembers, and other dignitaries
on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 from 3:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at 26745
Malibu Hills Road in Calabasas at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the
recently completed Malibu Hills Road Green Street Project.
Features of the Malibu Hills Road Green
Street Project include enhanced street drainage, improved water
quality by filtering flows through bio-filtration soil media,
visually appealing landscaping, a new median that improves traffic
and pedestrian safety by reducing vehicular speed, and new native
trees and shrubs that will enhance air quality. The additional
landscaping will be irrigated by run-off and surface water that will
be diverted into the median.
“I am very proud that Calabasas
continues to be a leader in developing and implementing cutting edge
environmental programs and facilities,” said Calabasas Mayor Gaines.
“Here we have combined traffic safety, street beautification and
water quality improvements all in one project.”
The project, financed under the Safe
Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and
Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006, is the first phase of the
Citywide Green Streets Project which will provide five different
streets throughout Calabasas with a variety of green street and low
impact development improvements.
