The enthusiastic team of partners, designers and public relations consultants describe Canyon Oaks Estates as something completely different: fresh, innovative and, above all, environmentally sensitive. They say the proposal to build 97 houses and a golf course in the Summit Valley area of Topanga Canyon reflects a far deeper appreciation for the natural terrain and more concern about community opinion than any of the previous development proposals for the land submitted over the past 14 years.

Walt Disney's name is on Los Angeles' world-famous concert hall, but it was a far less-known Disney who came from behind the scenes to ensure that architect Frank Gehry's vision for the building stayed intact. Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney's eldest daughter, had previously shunned the limelight along with other women in the family. "We were just three women, my mother, my sister and me," she said in a 2003 Los Angeles Times interview. "Housewives, if you will. " That's pretty much how the public knew her until 1997, when some of the city's most powerful figures came close to forcing out Gehry during a crucial planning phase of the hall.
