THINK LOCAL | DONATE TO SAVE OUR CANYON YODAY
A proposed hotel and zoning change threatens the environment, our residential community, and every canyon in Los Angeles.
Save Our Canyon is thrilled to announce that Paul Koretz has officially taken a public position to stand with his constituents against the hotel and zone change. This is a significant victory for the community and a direct result of our strong and well-organized voices speaking in unison. We should feel very proud of our accomplishment.
At the same time, we must also recognize this is only our first battle, and we have many fights ahead. The developer has not withdrawn his application, nor has it been modified in any way. Together, alongside our Councilmember and his staff, we can stop this hotel and Save Our Canyon.
Citing concerns about traffic, grading, removal of protected trees, impeding wildlife corridors and fire safety, Koretz has written a thoughtful and well-reasoned position paper which you can read in its entirety by clicking here.
We have many to thank for this battle victory, not the least of which is the Benedict Canyon Association, who have been tireless defenders of the canyon for generations and great allies in this fight.
Just as we loudly urged Councilmember Koretz to oppose this project, let us now thank him for standing alongside his constituents. Please click here to send an email expressing your gratitude to him for standing up to fight for the safely integrity of our community and the protection of our environment.
WHAT NEXT? JOIN US ON OCTOBER 30TH AT THE BEL AIR CHURCH
This fight for our community is just beginning. Please come to our IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETING at the Bel Air Presbyterian Church on October 30th @ 7pm where we will celebrate this accomplishment, and detail the important next steps we will be taking to Save Our Canyon.
With respect and appreciation,
The board of Save Our Canyon
