An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND/IS) is available for review for the. proposed 41-acre Taylor Yard River Parcel G2 (2070 North San Fernando Road). The project site is located approximately, 3 miles north of downtown Los Angele in the community of Cypress Park of Los Angeles and Council District 1 area of the City of Los Angeles.
