Massive New LA County City in Fire-Prone Wilderness? Sign the Petition and Testify Dec. 11 to #StopCentennial
Tejon Ranch Centennial Specific Plan (or Centennial) is a massive planned city in a unique, rare, fire-prone wilderness of grasslands and mountains, a residential and commercial development in LA County. On December 11, 2018, the LA County Board of Supervisors will meet to decide whether or not to proceed with the project. They must oppose this disaster with no viable alternatives, that tries to use cap and trade to excuse their massive greenhouse gas impacts, and would fiscally compromise the future of LA County urban communities in favor of a major corporation’s real estate gamble.
When: Tuesday, December 11, 9:00am
Where: LA County Board of Supervisors, 500 W. Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA
Centennial would require expanding the two-lane Highway 138 into a six-lane freeway, at a taxpayer cost of scarce transportation funds of at least $830 million. 75,000 new long-distance vehicle trips per day will clog our freeways.
The development would also dramatically increase the risk of catastrophic wildfires and put tens of thousands of people in a high fire hazard area that will lead to more deaths, destroyed homes and firefighting costs.
We need EVERYONE to show up and speak to the County to call for responsible planning!
