VHGC TOWN HALL MEETING!

Tuesday, July 7th at 7pm

North Valley City Hall

Come get all the latest details. Learn about the Draft EIR, the EIR process, and how to make comments!

Rich Toyon will present a community friendly project alternative including ideas how the Verdugo Hills Golf Course property could be expanded with additional recreation, rather than the 229 homes proposed by the developer. Our community friendly alternative would preserve the Golf Course, the trees, and the watershed, with the use of ecologically sound land management and conservation of natural resources.

Speak out now or lose the golf course forever!

We’ll see you Tuesday night.

  1. WELL NOW MAYBE YOU HAVE TIME TOO COME UP WITH SOMETHING TO CUT THESE GUYS DOWN TO SIZE. I CAN`T GET OUT BUT THAT GOLF COURSE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. OUR SENIOR CITIZENS CAN GET OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN. DON`T FORGET SPREAD SOME MOTH BALLS AROUND THE COURSE AND YOU WILL HAVE NO SNAKES TO BOTHER YOU. I CAN`T EVEN GET ONE OF THOSE RASCAL SCOOTERS TO GET AROUND ON. MY WIFE HAS ONE AND SHE GETS AROUND JUST GREAT. BUT IT COST`S US $ 4500.00 FOR IT. ONLY HAVE $ 1000.00 LEFT TO PAY ON IT. I WEIGH TOO MUCH TO GET ONE AND MEDICARE WONT PAY FOR IT SO I`M NOT GETTING ONE. CAN`T AFFORD ANOTHER $ 4500.00 FOR ONE.GOOD LUCK TO EVEYONE THAT ARE WORKING SO HARD TO PULL THIS OFF.
    BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU

    what is the update on the Kmart site? It would be nice to see some of these topics addressed on this site or just a comment like still in process so it doesnt appear nothing is happening.
    I see the shopping park on Cornor of Commerce is all out for lease. Does anyone have any updates if there is anyone interested in leasing any of the space and general idea what offers have been made
    Yes understand the economy is bad right now. Also notice more homeless people moving into the park and more digging through the neighborhood trashcans on Monday mornings. Is anything being done to address the problem or are we becoming a dumping ground for neighboring citys that have chased them out? Have any of our churchs offered their assitance to the community to help these peole out and into places that are tailored to their needs and requirements rather then sleeping in our backyards and begging for money outside shops etc
    Then almost every cornor some store is selling smoking items pipes cigars etc
    When most cities are putting no smoking in their communities we seem to be embracing it and giving out permits for these stores to do that or they are just doing that without asking like the house in Shadow Hills with the sign advertising in the backyard Physic Readings. Must be a oversight from LA again and its still there
    its sad because we have so many young families in this community and these little things make it hard to be proud of our town. How could we ever get well known stores to want to come here. I spoke to a Rep from trader Joes and they laughed at us saying its not a town they want to be in basically because of all the above
    or are we so caught up in fighting the developers on the Golf course (although this is important too) no one has noticed these things taking hold in our neighborhoods
    Please tell me all is being address. Joe where are you?

  3. Veroinca,
    It’s Joe. I’m Here! Wow you raise alot of questions. I’ll try to answer some of them. The future of the K-Mart site is in discussion between at least 2 interested parties which include
    Target and Mission College. We may have an answer in the next few weeks which we will report here. A brief summary of the talks is that Mission College would like to buy the site and share it with Target. Target would like to lease the entire site for themselves. In the meantime Home Depot wants an arm and a leg for the lease, so everyone is in negotiations. We are not privy to what these discussions are leading to, we just know that they are occurring.

    The Commerce Center is nearly complete but I have no info on any potential stores.

    The Homeless problem is a societal issue and not one that the STA would or has time to take on.

    The STA (and the STNC) is currently dealing with a Used Car lot trying to go in where the Coffee Stop used to be.
    There are only so many of us and only so much time. Smoke shops seem to be legal so I don’t know what we can do about that at this point.

    The Pyschic Sign is being handled by the STNC. The owners have been ordered to remove it and are refusing.
    It looks like they will be have to answer why before a judge pretty soon.

    And yes, fighting the Golf Course developers is taking almost all of our time.

    Thanks Joe. We are so lucky to have you and many others fighting to keep our town in check. Keep the good fight. Your efforts do not go unnoticed by us that are somewhat silent
