With the success of Phase I of the project, adjacent to the Albertsons shopping center on Agoura Road, the City of Calabasas is pursuing the restoration of 1.5 mile of Las Virgenes Creek from Agoura Road to De Anza Park. The City has retained Questa Engineering Corp. to design the project which includes bank stabilization, creek restoration, fish barrier enhancement and establishing a developed multi-purpose trail and a natural walking trail along the creek.
