A new developer has surfaced with plans to build houses exactly on our launch site and all the way down the main ridge, volcano, bench, and foothills. If allowed to do so, this would end flying at Kagel. Look for details soon from your board.

In the meantime, it's election time for the city councilperson in our area and we need to hope we get someone elected that will fight hard to prevent this project from happening. Both candidates are democrats, but some of our political friends are encouraging Sylmar, LakeView Terrace, Kagel Cyn, Pacoima and Sunland Tujunga residents to vote for Karo Torossian for City Council. They believe he's our best choice to ward off land developers.

The club cannot take a position on elections, but members are free to discuss and vote for whom they see fit. Make sure you go out and vote next Tuesday if you live in City Council District 7.

I haven't finished my research but I will post what I have.
In the 90s while driving south on the 280 from San Francisco down to San Jose I saw all these houses built right on the mountain top ridge of the Santa Cruise mountains. The friend I was with said after they built those they passed a law that says you cannot obscure the horizon by building on a mountain top, because it is ugly.

Does Los Angeles have such a law?
I think if you have the money you can buy the politician to get the permit but even U2 couldn't bribe Malibu to build their mountain top compound.

I cannot find evidence of that law only a situation like we ran into getting the pavilion permit.

if it is developed the developer may need to include low cost housing:
