Kudos to the tireless Calabasas community activists who delivered petition signatures to the city of Calabasas yesterday to meet the July 21 deadline. And, a big thank you to so many Calabasas residents for signing the petition; for standing up for their city; for wanting to be informed and vote for upholding their planning laws; and to attempt to hold their elected and city employees accountable to the people.
