In spite of being removed from the agenda, a number of people from Agoura Hills and the Cornell neighborhood south of the city spoke before the city council urging the city to assist the MRCA with a grant to help purchase the property.
CORRECTION: In our last post on this issue, November 30, we provided a link to a map of Triangle Ranch that was incorrect. The link went to a map of a different parcel. Below is an accurate map of the Triangle Ranch properties that the MRCA hopes to acquire.
Acquisition of the property will provide a broad habitat connection between the Liberty Canyon wildlife corridor and the Ladyface Mountain core habitat area that contains over 1,000 protected acres. Acquisition will protect a regionally significant viewshed along Kanan Road as one of the main gateways to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The purchase will also protect 2,300 feet of Medea Creek with a broad riparian corridor and adjacent oak woodlands.
This item will come back before the Agoura Hills City Council. Watch this blog for information.
