In this time of awakening to the fact that rampant growth is not always the best growth, I was shocked to see the plans for the hills above Altadena proposed by Tim Cantwell.
He wants to build 350 housing units in an area now rich in sycamores, great horned owls, meadows for deer, and mountain ridges--some of which would be destroyed.
The area that once served as a sanitarium would become the hub of the development. This was the perfect setting for a sanitarium for those with respiratory illnesses because of the quiet, clean air and vegetation. It remains a tranquil park-like area.
Cantwell proposes to build a gated community. Those residents living east of this project and watching with no interest are naive about what could happen.
