The Baldwin Hills Conservancy was established in 2000 to acquire open space and manage public lands within the Baldwin Hills area and to provide recreation, restoration, and protection of wildlife habitat for the public's enjoyment and educational experience.
Specific agency responsibilities are to:
- Approve the Baldwin Hills Park Master Plan
- Prioritize and implement acquisition of additional recreational and open space land for the expansion of Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area
- Provide recreational, open space, wildlife habitat restoration and protection and lands for educational use within the area
- Conduct the necessary planning activities for the area
- Develop and coordinate a program of resource stewardship for optimum recreational and natural resource value based on the needs of the surrounding community
- Provide for the public's enjoyment, and to enhance the recreational and educational experience on public lands in a manner consistent with the protection of lands and resources in the area
Since department programs drive the need for infrastructure investment, each department has a related capital outlay program to support this need. For the specifics on the Baldwin Hills Conservancy's Capital Outlay Program, see 'Infrastructure Overview.'
