Kanan Cornell Subdivision Revision Denied by Regional Planning

Today, the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission DENIED – Project No. 98187-(3) – Revised Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. and 52805-1 Conditional Use Permit No. RPPL2016003948

The Las Virgenes Homeowners Federation, Inc., OPPOSED the Project. We concurred with Regional Planning’s recommendation and asked the PC to DENY the application in that it was seriously INCONSISTENT with the policies of the Santa Monica Mountains North Area Land Use Plan. The requested modifications would have dramatically altered the natural terrain from what was originally approved and even the environmental impacts on the required “open space lots” would have been far greater. It was in essence a “new Project”.  This wild, beautiful, and rugged Project site on Kanan and Cornell is located in a particularly important location – on one of the principle, if not the principal, “Gateway to the Santa Monica Mountains”. If anything there should be strict adherence to the policies of the North Area Plan (NAP) – because the negative impacts alone to the public’s scenic and biological resources are un-mitigatable.
