Verdugo Hills Golf Course Developer to Present Plans Monday

Janek Dombrowa, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Southern California and principal architect at JTD Architects, will present Snowball West’s plans for the development of Verdugo Hills Golf Course to the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council’s Land Use Committee.

Snowball West’s plans for the new community include approximately 12 acres of open space available for public dedication and 2 acres of open space to be controlled by a homeowners’ association. Half the acreage of the 28-acre site would be preserved as open space or park space.

Many local groups fought the development over the course of a decade, but their efforts culminated in a Los Angeles City Council motion in late June of 2013 to lay aside a small fraction of the site for commemorating the internment of Japanese Americans and others during World War II. That council motion, offered by then-Councilman Richard Alarcon and seconded by Eric Garcetti, failed to obstruct the planned development.

The City then formed a working group with Snowball stakeholders and community members to address concerns of the monument site, but the working group does not address broader housing-tract development issues.

The developer also sued the City of Los Angeles over the attempt to use a monument to block the broader development; that lawsuit is pending.

The meeting will be held on Monday, October 20, at 7 p.m. at North Valley Neighborhood City Hall, 7747 Foothill Blvd., Tujunga

    “After the community came together to clean Tujunga Canyon Boulevard in October, the Verdugo Hills Men’s Golf Club approached one of its members, Paul Lindsey, owner of Paul Lindsey Contracting, to help replace the golf course’s run-down sign on the boulevard.

    Paul Lindsey Contracting, with Brian Kanner from B.K. Signs Inc., took it upon themselves to donate and install the new sign. Paul and Brian are local residents, both graduates of Crescenta Valley High School. Greg House chipped in, painting over the old sign in green and the wait was on for the new sign to be approved and arrive.

    On January 16 at 8:00 am, Paul with his crew of Paul, Jr.,Juan Carlos and Erik installed the new sign on the Verdugo Hills Golf Course. It took an effort of local, caring residents to clean up and improve their favorite golf course.”
