'Dwindling Open Space'

September 06, 1988

Well, the developers of Jordan Ranch and Ahmanson Ranch finally came out from under their rock and stated that their developments would make enough money to be incorporated as a city! This is to be around a national park, to which the park source limits access because the ecosystem is so fragile!

If they can't get a right-of-way through private land to Jordan Ranch because it's "too expensive," then the development shouldn't be built.

Residents should go out and look at Cheeseboro Canyon. I assure you, you'll be amazed, as there is no parkland in the Santa Monica Mountains that approaches it. A real oak forest with the quiet spreading trees overhead and your footsteps muffled by the fallen leaves. Nice level ground--an easy walk for kids or older folk. A sense of solitude in the brush. Try it. Before the houses and 20,000 people there for a PGA tournament and the business park doom it to oblivion.
