Citizens will have an opportunity to learn more about the Antelope Valley Project at an information meeting Wednesday, November 20 at Lincoln High School, 2229 "J" Street. The Joint Antelope Valley Authority (JAVA) and the JAVA Citizens Committee are sponsoring the open house, and citizens are invited to stop by any time between 5 and 8 p.m. The meeting will be in the school cafeteria, and those attending can park in the north lot and use the north doors.
The Antelope Valley Project includes flood control, community revitalization and transportation improvements. Bids were opened last month for the first phase of the channel work designed to accommodate a 100-year flood. It involves the modification of the Antelope Creek channel along the west side of the Devaney Sports Center from Salt Creek to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks.
This phase of the Antelope Valley project is expected to take six to ten years at an estimated cost of $223 million. More information is available on the City website.
