Traffic woes

I totally agree with Jeff Cohen in reference to his letter to the editor regarding traffic in Agoura Hills and asking the City Council, “If you cannot adequately control traffic congestion in this area at this time, how will you deal with additional traffic caused by added development?” Pending before the council right now are several new developments on the […]

Boundary lines

Last Wednesday night, the Agoura Hills City Council approved filing an application for annexation and the adoption of a sphere of influence for two of the unincorporated areas that are physically part of the geography and service areas of Liberty Canyon and Agoura Hills. The L.A. County Local Agency County Formation Commission (LAFCO) makes the determination of city boundary lines […]

Halpern in WLV

As a resident of Westlake Village, I cannot say enough to support the reelection of Brad Halpern to City Council. All of us have experienced Brad’s amazing ideas that have come to fruition: Fourth of July Fireworks Show, the city trolley, city funding laptops for all students at White Oak Elementary School that strengthen our school’s edge, the annual WLV […]

Favorites in Agoura Hills
