Burton Way Green Street and Water Efficient Landscape Project Officially Opens February 28

Beverly Hills, CA (February 20, 2024) – The City of Beverly Hills will officially celebrate the completion of its Burton Way Green Street and Water Efficient Landscape Project with a special Ribbon Cutting Ceremony that will take place on Wednesday, February 28th at 11 a.m. at the mini park located on the southeast corner of Burton Way and Rexford Dr.

“Burton Way is the first of many Green Streets our City will have as we move toward adopting a more environmentally conscious infrastructure. This is critical for our water conservation efforts and our broader City sustainability goals,” said Mayor Dr. Julian Gold.

The project marks the City’s first Green Street that will prevent polluted urban runoff from reaching Santa Monica Bay and will serve as Beverly Hills’ water efficient garden model.  This new Burton Way Median will save approximately 5 million gallons of water annually.

The project incorporates infiltration swales, native water efficient plants, and a 1 million gallon underground reservoir that will store treated urban runoff to irrigate the new landscape. The design layout features 16 unique plant species arranged to highlight the City’s exceptional public art pieces.

The project received approximately $6.7 million from grant funding from Measure W- Safe Clean Water Program and the Department of Water Resources (DWR).
