What Are Those Things?

One of the unique features planned for Agoura Village was large stone monuments to denote the entries and let people know they were in a unique area.   But when our city council saw the design for the monuments and the plan for their placement within the Agoura Village area, they had a difficult time visualizing their actual appearance. Fortunately, Mayor Bill Koehler, then a council member, suggested the city erect story poles to help the council visualize the size and placement of the monuments. Those strange wood frames sprouting on the south side of the city are the result. Each structure represents the approximate size and placement of the monuments. Please drive by and consider them in relation to the mountains backdrop and then add your thoughts about size and placement. We will share all the comments we receive with the city.

Traffic Improvements Coming?

On November 6, 2016, 71.6% of L.A. County voters approved the Metropolitan Transit District’s ballot Measure M. This permanent ½ cent sales tax increase will now provide a new revenue stream intended for major improvements to the County’s public transit system.

Agoura Hills has submitted four applications for projects inside our city: the Palo Comado Interchange, the Kanan Corridor Improvements Project, the Roadside Drive Improvements Project, and the Regional Transit Center Project.

The city will be holding an informational Workshop for the public to attend, to learn more about these proposed projects, and to ask questions directly of city staff. All of these would impact our daily lives. Would there be secondary impacts beyond the benefits? On adjacent open space? On traffic speed? On oak tree preservation? On community character?

We encourage you to attend and share your thoughts.

Tuesday, January 16 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Agoura Hills City Hall Community Room, 30001 Ladyface Court
