A Historic Day in Sunland-Tujunga



On Monday morning, Councilman Paul Krekorian led a dedication event at Angeles National Golf Course to recognize the permanent protection of almost 280 acres of land surrounding the golf horse. Against the beautiful backdrop of the Tujunga Wash and the Angeles National Forrest, Councilman Krekorian celebrated the transfer of this acreage to the  Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA). The land will never be developed, there will never be houses built or the land exploited in any way. This was an almost 15 year effort by numerous organizations, elected officials, and local residents to arrive at this historic day. Thank you Councilman Krekorian for finishing the mission undertaken so many years ago. This is a gift to us all and to the future residents of our community and the city. A really special day in every way!

  1. Congratulations to the citizens of Sunland – Tijunga on saving the beautiful area near the golf course. As a resident of Sylmar the next big town to the west of Sunland, I hope we have the same success keeping our beautiful mountains from being turned into a veritable waste land. Parts of Kagel Mountain are privately owned, and Sekeda Trucking which owns a parcel of land wants to destroy Kagel Mountain and turn it into a surface mine. These are iconic mountains with hang gliders in the sky and a wonderful eco system.
    If there are any citizens of the Tijunga – Sunland are who are concerned about other areas very near, please contact DanF@Casm-sfv.org — Citizens Against Surface Mine — in Sylmar. The destruction would include over 200 truck trips daily for 7 years — 5 days a week from the Pacoima Wash to the 210 Freeway. This would be the complete destruction of a very beautiful area of the San Fernando Valley, as well as destroying roads – water – and a very peaceful area of the SF Valley. We need all the help we can get to keep this destruction from happening. Any of you who seem to know which buttons to push to keep your area beautiful are welcome to give input to the Citizens of Sylmar who are very much opposed to the surface mine possibility.
