At the 16 September meeting, two weeks back, the appellants (Brea residents) laid out their case, followed by the respondent (developer Shopoff Group.) This meeting is scheduled to hear public comment, which is the opportunity for anyone to lay out their views in a five-minute timeframe.
As I stated previous to the last meeting, this is it, the last chance for interested parties to speak their mind (hopefully, respectfully, rationally, and responsibly) before the council either approves or denies the appeal. This ill-conceived project will transform this canyon forever and turn a necessary buffer against the massive sprawl that has become the Los Angeles megalopolis (doesn't that sound like a creature from a 1960s Japanese monster movie, like Godzilla & Rodan vs. Megalopolis?) into another sacrifice of open space and potential parkland to feed the twin-headed beast of private property rights and rampant real estate development.
