Mountain lion kill causes consternation

I was outraged and deeply saddened upon learning of the collared mountain lion’s senseless and unnecessary death, as a result of the state depredation law. This will set conservationists as well as animal activists back, as their efforts to track and study their habits will be diminished. I truly feel for the farmer who lost many sheep over the years, […]

A driver mess

Letters to the editor don’t put me in a frenzy, but sitting in stopped traffic while trying to run a quick errand certainly does. Driver Avenue in Old Agoura is a mess, and the absolute last thing we should do is add to the already growing disaster. Don’t even get me started on fire evacuation routes. I presented other options. […]

Voting yes on N

A yes vote on measure N isn’t just the right thing to do to help our Calabasas neighbors stay in their homes, it is also good planning. A yes vote on Measure N will allow Calabasas to meet our state housing requirements without having to build on our hillsides or develop other infill projects. Our city planning experts and leaders […]

No on Measure N

A major concern with the Measure N is that city oversight being bypassed. Measure N allows Calabasas laws and codes to be manipulated to suit the developer. Measure N proposes changes to our general plan to increase density and traffic in an area that is already subject to very heavy traffic. It sets a bad precedent for our city. It […]

Vote yes on V

As a proud parent of Sumac, A.E. Wright and Agoura High alums, I am voting yes on Measure V, and I urge you to do the same. Most of the schools in the Las Virgenes Unified School District were built in the 1960s and 1970s and have reached a critical point in their life cycle requiring significant improvements that the […]

SOS against AVE

Have you ever been caught in unsafe conditions in the middle of the intersections of Agoura and Kanan roads and the southwest Kanan Bridge off-ramp during peak hours? Critical Agoura Hills’ intersections are now over capacity. This significant traffic impact is occurring now even though the massive Agoura Village East (AVE) proposed project has not been approved. The public environmental […]

Traffic a problem

Letters to the editor don’t put me in a frenzy, but sitting in stopped traffic while trying to run a quick errand certainly does. Driver Avenue in Old Agoura is a mess, and the absolute last thing we should do is add to the already growing disaster. Don’t even get me started on fire evacuation routes. I presented other options.

Residents want affordable units to stay that way

Right now we have 80 neighbors living here in Calabasas who are on pins and needles, who wake up every day wondering where they will live next year. These are the residents at Avalon- Bay who live in affordable units. We can answer their pleas by voting yes on Measure N, or we can roll out a long list of […]

Yes on N

Does Calabasas care? If yes, then vote yes on Measure N. AvalonBay Calabasas was first built with 80 affordable units. That requirement has expired and 80 families currently living in these apartments will be forced to leave, unless we vote yes on Measure N. The State of California is coming down hard on cites to build more affordable housing. In […]

No on N

Measure N is not about affordable housing: It is about a large development expansion. AvalonBay is the big 600-unit apartment complex on the west side of Las Virgenes, south of Meadow Creek Lane just north of Lost Hills Road. Formerly called Archstone, it was bought in 2013 by AvalonBay, a multi-billion-dollar Arlington, Va. company that owns apartment complexes in 12 […]
