CSSLR is the Committee to Save
Silver Lake's Reservoir. Formed in late 1988 and incorporated as a
nonprofit public benefit corporation in 1989, the Committee is a single issue citizen's
group established to preserve and enhance the historical, aesthetic, ecological and
recreational benefits of Silver Lake's open was reservoirs.
The Committee is dedicated to informing the community about reservoir-related news and
issues through its newsletter Making Waves. As well, the Committee sponsors community
meetings on an as-needed basis to provide forums for residents to become involved in
decisions affecting the reservoirs.
The current focus of the Committee is the development of a reservoir "master plan" in conjunction with
the Department of Water and Power and other concerned city agencies. The master plan will
address expanding the recreational benefits of the area surrounding the Silver Lake
reservoirs, renovation of existing facilities, upgrading security and public safety and
other issue relevant to the community.
The Committee, which operates strictly on volunteer labor, has several standing
sub-committees, including Events, Public Relations and Government Relations.
The community residents who
coordinate the Committee activities could use your help in these areas. Especially needed
are those with backgrounds in graphic design, event planning, public relations, grant
writing and urban planning. Please contact us at (213) 612-5271.
