 Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sat down with KPCC political reporter Frank Stoltze last night at the KPCC Crawford Family Forum to discuss future plans for the city. On the agenda is a restoration of the LA River. Garcetti said he supports a $1 billion plan to restore the river’s ecosystem.

He also talked about plans to retrofit buildings in LA, many of which the Los Angeles Times recently reported may not survive a major earthquake. Guest host Frank Stoltze will contextualize last night’s discussion and talk further about the future of LA.

Alice Walton, KPCC’s City Hall reporter
