Madrona Appeal Continues Tomorrow Night

The appeal before the Brea City Council of the Madrona project, the previous iteration of which (Canyon Crest) was approved by the city's planning commission in Fall 2008, continues at the regular meeting of the city council tomorrow Tuesday, 4 March at 7:00 p.m. at the city hall council chambers, corner of Birch and Randolph streets.

Each side has made their opening statements and public comment has also been taken.  Now, the developer and the appellant teams will be presenting their rebuttals.  With other council business on the docket, it is not clear whether both teams will be able to complete their rebuttals tonight or if there will be a continuation to the next council meeting on the 18th.

In any case, anyone concerned about the potential of having 162 houses on the north end of Carbon Canyon between Olinda Village and Sleepy Hollow should seriously consider attending and letting the city know by your presence that this is a matter of great importance.

Your presence is vital. It shows Brea's Council that people really do care. It supports the people who have worked so hard to defeat this harmful project, and who have stuck to telling the facts and avoided hyperbole and name-calling.

The drought, fires, mudslides, and recent accidents on the Canyon Road all speak volumes for turning this project down.
