Albert Piantanida could not be there for the news on Thursday that a community center in Panorama City that he helped to get built will soon be getting even bigger. But he was definitely remembered. A sign was unveiled at the park, during a ceremony on Thursday led by Councilwoman Nury Martinez, officially rechristening the community hub as the Albert Piantanida Intergenerational Center, in honor of the community advocate, who died in 2015. The park facility, known until Thursday as the Mid-Valley Intergenerational Multipurpose Center, opened in February 2015, about eight months before Piantanida died at the age of 76. #gallery-2984197-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2984197-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2984197-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2984197-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian gave $300,000 for the Albert Piantanida Intergenerational Center in Panorama City on Thursday, December 13, 2018 for phase two which will include basketball courts and a playground on the land behind the center.

During Thursday’s event, Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian, D-Van Nuys, presented a blow-up check representing $300,000 in state funding that was secured for an expansion project to add a walkway connecting the center to Sylmar Avenue, basketball courts, a playground and picnic areas to the park. It represents the final bit of funding needed to move forward with the park project, city parks officials said. The project will be considered by the Recreation and Parks Commission in January or February, and if approved, would be completed by the end of 2019, according to Ramon Barajas of the city Department of Recreation and Parks. “This center is now named in Mr. Piantanida’s honor because he always looked for ways to improve the resources our community provides, while putting children first,” Martinez said. Piantanida sat on a committee that gave recommendations on the design of park projects funded by Proposition K also worked behind the scenes to get the Devonshire-Arleta Pocket Park built, according to Martinez. He also worked to get a traffic signal installed at the intersection of Woodman Avenue, Montague Street and Parthenia Street. Pastor Walter Clarke, an Arleta resident, said Piantanida “brought a wide variety of people together to help bring that vision to reality.” “Al Piantanida or ‘Big Al’ as some called him, was a tireless, energizing force in the community,” he said. Piantanida was also involved with the Arleta Chamber of Commerce and Arleta Looky Loos Neighborhood Watch, and he led the Village Green East Home Owners Association. He was a founder of the Arleta Community Watchdogs.
