The City Released Recirculated Portions of the Draft Environmental Impact Report regarding a proposed development for the Verdugo Hills Golf Course.
December 23, 2015 -- Update regarding request for extension of comment time. Council District 7 requested 15 days and City Planning has granted the request. New deadline for comments is Feb. 3, 2016. Letters to all will be mailed by the City and the extended deadline date will also be posted on the City Planning website in a few days here: http://planning.lacity.org/eir/VerdugoHillGolfCourse/DEIR_RP/RP_DEIR%206433%20La%20Tuna%20Canyon/RP_DEIR6433LaTunaCanyon.html
The following sections of the Draft EIR have been recirculated for public comment:
• Updated Traffic Section
• Updated Cultural Resources Section
• New Greenhouse Gas Emissions Section
• New 86-unit Equestrian Estates Alternative
• New 221-unit Residential Alternative
The STNC encourages stakeholders to read and comment on at least one portion of the recirculated sections if you care about the future of this important and historic site in Sunland-Tujunga. The close of public comments is
January 19, 2016. Extended to February 3, 2016.
The STNC also encourages you to attend upcoming STNC meetings, City hearings and meetings regarding this site. Check this page and the Calendar on the STNC website.
To read the Recirculated Sections, go to:
Scroll down to the bottom, click on the Down Arrow to begin, and then click on GO.
You can also review the Draft EIR at the Sunland-Tujunga Branch Library at 7771 Foothill Boulevard, Tujunga or at The Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council office now located at 8250 Foothill Blvd., Sunland.
Your written comments are encouraged but you do not have to comment on every Section. Pick the one that you know the best or that interests you the most. Following are ideas for your review:
Compare the Revised Section to the Original Section in the Draft EIR. To find the Original Draft EIR go to: http://planning.lacity.org/eir/VerdugoHillGolfCourse/DEIR/DEIR%20Verdugo%20Hills%20Golf%20Course.html
Why are the above sections being recirculated? Are they showing more impacts than originally? Are they showing fewer impacts? Either way, do you agree with the revised Section?
Bring up all possible objections and concerns that you have about the Revised Sections of the EIR. Your comments should be as detailed as possible and include facts and information upon which they are based.
Include who you are, your professional and community affiliations too.
If you need assistance, ask at the upcoming LUC and STNC meetings.
