    The video shown is incorrect; it appears to be from a prior Regional Planning hearing. It is NOT from yesterday’s hearing.

    And for this a great deal of thanks is due to our wonderful watchdog newspaper the Signal. Although they were informed and warned about this landfill expansion years ago, first denied it, then refused to report on it. It could have been nipped in the bud. Right there a reasonable person would have to suspect that something or someone got to them to make them betray their obligations of reporting and informing the very public they depend on to stay in business. I don’t believe they deserve to stay in business. They are a major player of our local “fourth estate” but if this episode is any indication, you may thank this “fifth column” for the extra trucks, the extra particulate matter we all will be breathing and smelling, and all the unknown substances being buried right next to and waiting to seep into the Santa Clara River. Well done Signal, Castaic and Santa Clarita Council Go-Alongs, Knight, Wilk, and Barger. A good night’s sleep must be no problem without a conscience. May you never have to live with your kids next to this dump, like you’ve sentenced other families to do.

  3. Sally White says:

    There was NO DISCUSSION of the Financial Pros and HEALTH, ENVIRONMENTAL AND QUALITY OF LIFE Cons at this hearing. The conclusion was previously determined, favoring PROFIT over PEOPLE! VERY, VERY SAD! MONEY RULES!

    Well, this seems to be another interesting action of the County of Los Angeles on behalf of it’s residents. Or should I say it’s contributors?

    I tried to find the online version of this important meeting, Instead I was given the opportunity to view records wherein the County was giving away access to ATT and other digital service providers access to sites and existing poles/fixture points around the County.

    Of course none of those installs would improve signal strength in my neighborhood.

    Still, I proceeded to look for the Chiquita Landfill information. And found nothing.

    Give it up folks. The deal is not only done, it is cemented. The only way that Chiquita is going to be stopped is when Newhall Land and Framing has built out to the county line.

    Then, and only then will the County respond to complaints from the Hoi Polloi who live in the new condos, ranchettes, and estates on the west side (and south side) of the former Santa Clara River. And that will be when 5 Points has made their money from their investments.

    I find it fascinating that the County who approved a development based on one company’s “investment”(aka payments)should go ahead and blow through further development issues like they don’t exist.

    Could there be a reason that Antonovich and friends needed this to happen?

    Nah, that’s just wild thoughts and innuendos.

    And don’t expect a new Supervisor of LA County to go against past precedent. She damn well knows how she got the job, and won’t do anything to upset the apple cart of those to whom she is beholden.

    Smile and take it like a champ, Val Verde. Someday your time will come.
