ANTONOVICH SUPPORTS LAWSUIT AGAINST TRUCK DRIVING ACADEMY IN LOPEZ CANYON

LOS ANGELES COUNTY – “Operating a trucking school where diesel tractor rigs will be spewing exhaust on property that is designated as open space is wrong,” said Supervisor Antonovich on his support for a lawsuit filed by community and resident groups to reverse the City of Los Angeles’ approval of a truck-driving academy in Lopez Canyon.

“Despite massive opposition from more than a dozen civic associations, environmental organizations, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved this site — rejecting a dozen more suitable locations suggested by residents,” he said.

The Lopez Canyon Landfill was de-commissioned in 1996, at which time the City of Los Angeles re-designated the property General Plan and zoning designations as Open Space.

    Supervisor Antonovich understands what the City Council does not. Designated Open Space is just that, and can never be used for pet projects by City Council members. Thank you Michael for your leadership on this issue.
