Applauding the Heschel decision

Congratulations to Old Agoura. As much as the paper and others try to malign you, your victory gives us all hope that we can still fight developers and city hall.

City would need to improve Chesebro ramp anyway

I am delighted at the prospect of the Heschel property being used as open space. However, in your article, Councilmember Harry Schwartz is quoted as saying that “Had the school gone forward, the Chesbro offramp would have needed major modifications.” It seems that Mr. Schwartz believes that the current condition of the Chesbro bridge is satisfactory and no action is necessary to upgrade the off ramp.
