    The staff report is consistent with salient points previously posted on It details a proposed swap of tidelands trust property at QW Bay with property not in the tidelands but in an area of the east side of L.A. river roughly from Broadway to the Shoemaker bridge near 7th St. Southerly parts include a land-locked freeway median presently inaccessible to the public, with northerly areas extending to the river surrounding the Shoemaker bridge at roughly 7th St.
