Planning for the Future of Hacienda Heights

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe is inviting residents and local business owners in Hacienda Heights to attend the kick-off meeting of a planned Community Planning Advisory Group.

Supervisor Knabe, along with the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, recently started the process of involving local residents in evaluation and updating of local community plans. The community group will also help explore priorities for local fee revenues coming from the last expansion of the Puente Hills Landfill.

This first meeting is planned for Wednesday, February 22, 2006 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Steinmetz Park Senior Center. The park is located at 1545 South Stimson Avenue in Hacienda Heights. The purpose of this meeting is to hear a report from the County’s consultants on the findings of their community interviews. This meeting is also the first opportunity for Hacienda Heights residents to come together to influence community planning priorities.

I look forward to personally addressing the Hacienda Heights community on Wednesday night, said Supervisor Knabe. This is an important process for outlining the future of Hacienda Heights and I want to thank the residents and local business owners for their help in shaping the future of this community.
