Fear of new store

I am writing to beg the community to get involved and stop the effort to rezone Lot C in Westlake Village and build a Target superstore.

The Other Side of 50

Taking responsibility for ourselves as we age It was really encouraging to see the turnout at the recent Thousand Oaks Council on Aging program about the Village Movement.

I am writing to express my strong objection to the proposed 243,500-square-foot retail center on Russell Ranch Road in Westlake Village behind Costco. The intention is for yet another Target store, a Total Woman Gym, a sports store as well as the ubiquitous café/restaurants. In a word, why? When there are currently two Target stores within easy distance, when we […]

Diamond days
