Bringing awareness to the preservation of our hillsides and undeveloped open space is the key factor behind many of the issues we champion for the Community. Through the grassroots efforts of the volunteers and the community, we have been involved in these successful initiatives:
- Successfully lobbied for new City procedures requiring story poles be built to outline height and size of proposed developments.
- Raised the visibility of two 4-story hotel development proposals which violated height restrictions, resulting in the City requiring the developers to adhere to the 3-story maximum height requirement.
- Following the City’s approval of a hotel and housing development in the scenic corridor at Agoura and Las Virgenes Roads, the group supported the successful No on Measure F effort that stopped the Canyon Oaks development. Residents voted almost 2 to1 against the project.
- Successfully lobbied the City to adopt mandatory public workshops for large development projects to promote transparency and increase public input in the City’s development process.
- Hosted community Crime Prevention Meeting, bringing the Lost Hills Sheriff department to a town hall type meeting to discuss crime issues directly with our community.
- Successfully fought for the health of children by supporting a City Council Review of the proposed Montessori Daycare at the old CoCo’s, next to the freeway, after a Planning Commission approval. This resulted in a denial of the inappropriate project.
- Opposed the West Village developer’s inadequate story pole proposal and prevailed with the Planning Commission to require adherence to the story pole policy, nearly doubling the number of poles installed.
