Walnut Canyon Update

The "Abode at Glassell Park" development was denied permits by the City of Los Angeles. The reason given was the developer did not submit required fees and documents within the allotted time. Now the property (about 5 acres) is on the market. It will probably be hard to sell to a developer, due to the rising costs and practical issues surrounding building in hillsides.

This is good news for us (Friends Of Walnut Canyon- those of us who worked to stop the development). I like to think that our opposition and communications with the City held up the project long enough to make it unfeasible to start.

Our mission now is to work with nonprofit, government and private agencies to obtain funding to purchase the property so it can remain "passive recreation".
