The County of Los Angeles Parks and Recreation Department (Department) prepared a Park Master Plan for the proposed Earvin “Magic” Johnson Recreation Area.  The Master Plan encompasses approximately 126 acres of land, including the existing Earvin “Magic” Johnson (EMJ Park) and former Ujima Village Apartment Complex (UVA) site. The Project is envisioned to enhance the community through improvements of the existing facilities, adding new facilities, and incorporating adjacent residential and private properties. An outreach program was facilitated to achieve a consensus of the Project’s master plan through community involvement and participation.

Implementation of the proposed Project would include expansion and a revitalization of the existing EMJ Park and the construction of new, state-of-the-art recreational facilities such as a Community Event Center, Equestrian Center, Gymnasium, South Agency Headquarters, Aquatic Center, Multi-Purpose Stadium, wedding pavilion, skate park, restrooms, and much more amenities.

RVA led in the efforts in preparing the Final EIR document, permits, community outreach efforts, coordination with the resource agencies and SD2 office and supported the Department in obtaining the County Board Certification.
