YOU DID IT! Nearly two hundred members responded to our call to action and emailed State leaders about their opposition to a bill which would have jeopardized the sanctity of single-family neighborhoods. We want to be clear the BHA recognizes California's need for more housing - but allowing construction of four townhomes on one lot next to your house or letting the State dictate local zoning laws is not the answer. For more information, see the LA Times article here. Thank you!

The Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for Mount Saint Mary’s University (MSMU) 38,000 sq ft Wellness Pavilion has not been released. At a meeting with the school a few weeks ago, we were told that the FEIR is delayed and there is no definite date on its release. The School, however, informed us that they have made changes to the project, which will be outlined in the FEIR, that will eliminate several impacts of the project. BHA representatives reiterated their concerns regarding traffic, intensification of use, enrollment and the lack of a robust, mandatory transportation management program by MSMU and what the School is doing to address them.
If you are going west on Sunset this Sunday and see a commotion around Mandeville Canyon, be advised it is just an evacuation drill they have planned in conjunction with LAFD and LAPD. Best to avoid the area if possible. The drill evacuation portions runs from 10am to 11am. From 11a to 1p, there is a Public Safety Fair if you're able to make it over there.
Attn: HAM Radio Operators
During the above event, evacuation and situational information will be relayed from the LAFD/LAPD Unified Command post via ham radio to the Hillside Emergency Communications Group. This is a great opportunity to practice your radio skills!
Please check in on the Hillside Communities EmComm Repeater (144.505 + PL 162.2) during this time to receive updated drill evacuation information and situational updates.
