The Trust for Public Land today expressed thanks to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for the board's unanimous decision to provide $500,000 to help preserve the 10-acre Red Car property in the city's Silver Lake neighborhood.

"We have been working for several years to protect this unique property for the community to enjoy, and we appreciate the support of the Board of Supervisors," said Becky Nielsen, project manager for The Trust for Public Land.

"The former Corralitas Red Car trolley line land is almost 10 acres and is one of the city's largest natural spaces," Ms. Nielsen said. "We have been working with the community to find the money necessary to make this effort successful and going forward, we will continue to seek a broad-based conservation solution."

The Trust for Public Land creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. Millions of people live within a one-half mile walk of a Trust for Public Land park, garden, or natural area, and millions more visit these sites every year.
