The Orange County Great Park is actually three park experiences in one, as laid out by the Great Park Master Plan, including the canyon, the habitat park, and the fields and memorial park. LSA is part of the Ken Smith design team in charge of the transportation and parking element for the park. Because of the park's unique uses, LSA has conducted special trip generation and parking turnover analyses to understand the park's dynamics. LSA has also developed preliminary concepts for an integrated, multimodal transportation system that includes vehicles destined for strategic parking areas, transit shuttles to connect the Irvine multimodal station with activities and events within the park, and a system of bicycle and pedestrian trails.

LSA biologists have extensive experience conducting protocol trapping surveys for rare, threatened, and endangered small mammal species throughout southern and central California. LSA has recently expanded its capabilities in this area. LSA now has 4 field investigators and 12 field assistants permitted to conduct protocol trapping for the Mohave ground squirrel (MGS), a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act. With so many qualified staff members, LSA is capable of handling multiple large projects requiring MGS protocol trapping while providing clients the responsiveness and flexibility to meet specified trapping survey time frames and regulatory requirements.
