Greed for sales tax revenue shouldn’t guide city’s planning



Greed for sales tax revenue shouldn’t guide city’s planning I’m very concerned how encouraging development requiring a more intense traffic use will impact me. In the mid-1990s the land currently planned for a big-box retailer was earmarked for business park/manufacturing use. A use that would create almost no traffic impact on the weekends when many of us are in our […]

Read the truth ––not the lies



Read the truth ––not the lies Why have the backers of Measure H chosen to promote their cause by spreading lies and slandering our city council? I personally know Louise, Ed, Jeff, Dan and Denis as many of you do. They are honest, hard-working, caring residents of our city who give many hours of time from their busy lives for […]

Measure H isn’t the answer



Measure H isn’t the answer Residents of Agoura Hills have gone to the polls more than half a dozen times in the city’s history to decide referendum issues, but none as important as Measure H on next Tuesday’s ballot.
