Honoring the Late Tom LaBonge by Renaming Two Historical Landmarks
Our Board of Commissioners approved the renaming of two historically significant facilities to honor the late 4th District Councilmember and longtime LADWP supporter, Tom LaBonge. The Los Angeles Aqueduct Centennial Garden and Headworks Water Complex will be renamed The Tom LaBonge Aqueduct Centennial Gardens and the Tom LaBonge Headworks Water Complex, respectively. Known affectionately as “Mr. Los Angeles,” LaBonge championed various critical water system projects, recognizing the significant role water plays in our city.
