Friends of the Santa Monica Mountains and supporters of our Local Coastal Program,
Thank you! We did it – you did it! Your personal testimony and hundreds and hundreds of letters of support over this lengthy hearing and approval process made all the difference. The Santa Monica Mountains will finally have a Local Coastal Program (LCP). What a great day to celebrate final approval of the most important document ever to govern land-use in the Santa Monica Mountains!
Credit for this herculean feat, goes to our Third District Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who envisioned and championed the LCP from start to finish. Zev and his planning deputy Ben Saltsman’s extraordinary efforts to protect our coastal resources, homeowners, horse owners, and communities in the LCP are now assured.
The Federation is grateful to Zev – for his integrity, energy, passion and 20 year enduring commitment to the preservation of the Santa Monica Mountains.
Kudos also to Supervisors Don Knabe and Gloria Molina for their yes votes yesterday – without them, the LCP would not have come to fruition; as well as to the California Coastal Commission for its two unanimous approvals.
WHAT A VICTORY – WHAT A JOURNEY – AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE LEGACY ZEV IS LEAVING US!
On behalf of all that is wild and wonderful in the Santa Monica Mountains – thank you again for being such an integral part of this winning effort. To the future …!
President, Las Virgenes Homeowners Federation, Inc., of the Santa Monica Mountains
