How would you respond to a threat of your very way of life?
Many residents of Granada Hills are preparing to defend their lifestyle - the suburban setting, the single family homes, the yards, the view of the mountains, all at a relatively affordable price.
Harridge Development is proposing a very dense, very massive mixed-use project at the corner of San Fernando Mission and Woodley Avenue, with 440 apartments over retail space.
This will bring rapid urbanization, with its problems of traffic, parking issues, overcrowding of schools and public services.
The Stop440 Alliance has brought together the community to fight against it -- too big, too much, too dense. Reasonable developement there would be accepted, but this feels like bringing downtown to the suburbs -- it just doesn't fit!
This meeting raised funds to pay for land-use experts to help in the fight, and discussed strategies for the one and only public hearing scheduled by the City, February 7th at 10;45 AM, at 6262 Van Nuys Blvd, 91401.
