Protect Wildlife Corridors in LA!

In 2018, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works approved an 8,000+ sq. ft. single family home to be constructed over a creek in Nichols Canyon. This approval, which includes the removal of five protected trees, failed to adequately address the environmental impact the development would have on the creek habitat, as well as the connectivity this land provides between two large open space areas.

Please tell LA City Council why you support appealing this approval. You can copy and paste the following, or explain in your own words: Dear City Council Members, I am a Citizen for Los Angeles Wildlife and I oppose the Board of Public Works adoption of ENV-2015-1843-MND and its addendum, as well as their approval of a tree removal permit for 5 protected trees. This decision failed to take in adequate consideration of the adverse effects this project would have on the onsite riparian habitat. The MND also did not address potentially adverse effects on habitat connectivity, as this land is acting as a wildlife corridor between two large open space habitat areas. The Tree Removal Permit for this project was granted prematurely, and no tree removal should take place before the City Council has heard our appeal.
