In February 2022, the City of Palmdale was awarded $1 million in Los Angeles County Measure A Competitive Grant Program funding under the City Natural Lands, Local Beaches, Water Conservation and Protection grant, which is earmarked for Amargosa Creek Trail enhancements. Funding was part of over $26 million in funds distributed to improve parks and open spaces across Los Angeles County. It marks the completion of the first-ever cycle of three competitive grant programs from Measure A, a parcel tax that was passed by voters in 2016.
Scope of Work
The project will improve the trail, establish trailheads, and add amenities such as tables, educational signage, fitness equipment, and bicycle repair infrastructure. It will also include planting native drought tolerant vegetation to sequester greenhouse gasses and reduce a heat island effect.
