NO 30% Carve Out Off the Top in Competitive Grant Category OPPOSE Agenda Item 1P – Policies and Grants Administration Manual for Measure A, the Safe, Clean Neighborhood Parks and Beaches Measure of 2016
I/we strongly urge you to vote NO on the Steering Committee’s recommendation to go off-Measure, and Change the Funding Allocations to carve out 30% off the top in the Competitive Grant Categories 3 and 4 and re-direct those dollars ONLY to High and Very High Need assessed Study Areas.
Please disseminate this critical information to your HOA’s, organizations, neighborhoods, and communities ASAP. Those of us that live adjacent to parkland, open space, and within the Santa Monica Mountains and our other Rim of the Valley mountain ranges know unequivocally that our native trees are dying from drought.
JULY 21 – DEADLINE TO GET SIGNATURES! SIGN THE PETITION NOW!
Community activists in Calabasas, fed up with the continual circumventing of the city’s General Plan by its elected officials, city manager, and community development director, made a very courageous move and launched a REFERENDUM to challenge the recently approved, “Canyon Oaks Hotel and Subdivision” on Las Virgenes Road. This is no easy feat – with a tight 30 day window – to write, circulate the petition and get the required number of signatures.

“First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
