Wonders how it passed originally

The Heschel school group purchased a piece of property not zoned for their ultimate usage, a 750-student narrowly populated and focused school. Apparently the Agoura City Council did not want the project, due in part to infrastructure costs and environmental concerns. The board-based community of Old Agoura Hills did not want the project and spent untold dollars and time fighting […]
