PEOPLE DREAM OF WORTHY ACCOMPLISHMENTS, WHILE OTHERS DO THEM!
Open Space (SOS) stopped a developer’s highway to Jordan Ranch through
Cheseboro Canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
SOS directly blocked the development of 2300
acre Jordan Ranch (Palo Comado Canyon).
The Jordan Ranch was then purchased as permanent national parkland
saving thousands of oak trees and a critical watershed in SMMNRA.
filed a legal challenge against the Liberty Canyon (Old Oren) development.
As a result of the challenge, most of the Liberty Canyon property
in Agoura was purchased as permanent parkland by a park agency.
halted the Micor urban project in a sensitive hillside area which was
three times the allowed density.
Most of this Micor property, including 400 oak trees and a wetland,
is now saved as parkland by three agencies.
Open Space (SOS) was instrumental in saving the 2300 acre Jordan Ranch (Palo Comado Canyon), 5400 acre Ahmanson Ranch, and 588 acre Gillette Ranch properties.
OS was involved with hearings on a Westlake Village development project, Westlake Vista. The developer proposed an 80-acre swap of the buildable Westlake Vista acres to preserve undevelopable Calabasas property. Heeding the public hearing comments, Westlake Village’s City Council rezoned the property as “open space” , the most protective and restrictive zoning category.
