Sunland-Tujunga Community Improvement Workshop
History of the Specific Plan – First in a Series
Sunland-Tujunga, CA – On Saturday, February 18, 2012 from 12 noon-2 p.m., the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council will host the first in a series of workshops to inform, educate and discuss improving the Foothill Boulevard Corridor in Sunland-Tujunga. For over 10 years the community has had a Specific Plan that is intended to improve and protect the visual appearance and types of businesses permitted throughout the 4-1/2 mile corridor that is located at the base of the Angeles National Forest between two mountain ranges.
Businesses, property owners, homeowners and renters are all welcome and encouraged to participate in what will be a very informative and engaging session.
R. Nicolas Brown, the City Planner assigned to the Specific Plan creation at the time, who now works for the City as Associate Zoning Administrator will be our main speaker.
The first workshop will be hosted by Jon vonGunten, resident and stakeholder who worked on the Specific Plan in the early 1990’s during the time when Joel Wachs was the City Councilman representing the area.
Future workshops are scheduled for Monday, March 12, and beyond, to explore the problems of the current Specific Plan.
The Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council, certified by the City of Los Angeles in 2003 has spear-headed these workshops in coordination with the Sunland-Tujunga Alliance, Inc. and the Sunland Tujunga Chamber of Commerce, long time resident stakeholders and new resident stakeholders to the Sunland-Tujunga Community
