Our Last Stand to Tell City Council to
protect our Quality of Life and Natural Heritage, prevent
Oakmont View V is a proposed 572-home development on one of our city's pristine mountainsides, presented by a land speculator. On March 12th the Glendale City Council will announce its decision whether to approve this development or not. This land is currently enjoyed as a recreational area by many hikers, bikers, and equestrians. The project is estimated to take at least 12 years. It could take many years more, based on the time it took to build Oakmont IV!
12 years or more of construction:
· Overcrowded local schools
· Gridlock on local streets
· Danger from heavy traffic in neighborhoods
· Problems with disaster rescue
· Over 3,000 trees gone forever
· Taxpayer burdens
· Slope stability and other land hazards
· Permanent scarring of our hillsides
· Increase in local air pollution
The latest revised draft environmental impact report lists 33 significant and unavoidable impacts and 25 more significant impacts on our quality of life from Oakmont View V! There are many more impacts that the Sierra Club and others believe will negatively affect Glendale if this development is built!
