La Brea Tar Pits Reimagining Central Lawn Rendering Large

The Public Process

Los Angeles County is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed La Brea Tar Pits Master Plan. The EIR will provide an assessment of the project’s probable environmental effects pursuant to State of California requirements under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

The County’s review process began in February 2022 with the release of a Notice of Preparation and announcement of public scoping meetings on the EIR for the proposed Master Plan.

In March 2022, the County led two virtual public scoping meetings where community members had the opportunity to learn about the project, the environmental review process and provide comments. Live interpretation was available in Spanish and Korean.

From the start, NHMLAC has been committed to ensuring the master planning process is open and inclusive, welcoming public participation. As the process continues with the County of Los Angeles, we will update this section with relevant public documents and other information.
