Passing of Longtime Member, Gloria Mogul
TO THE WHHO MEMBERSHIP & Our Woodland Hills Community: It is with much sorrow that I need to announce the passing of Gloria Mogul. Servant to our Community for many years, our beloved Gloria Mogul passed today, October 6, 2016. Her service with our Woodland Hills Chamber and the WHHO made its mark on our community. She was always quick to make serious efforts to help keep Woodland Hills clean and to always make this a better place to live. There is not enough space here to properly honor her legacy to our community. This is what we have so far from our dear friend Shirley Blessing who was kind enough to call: The burial is at Mount Sinai in Hollywood at 12:30 on Tuesday on October 11th at 12:30 pm. A reception will follow at Mount Sinai. Marlow will be in attendance. Gloria’s 2 sisters will also be in attendance. 5950 Forest Lawn Drive, LA 90068 For those knew her, please feel free to pass this email along. Continues prayers and Blessing to Marlow and the entire family.

Andrew Pennington and Jeff Jacobberger from Councilman Blumenfield's office and Jack Humpreville from City Watch gave us some interesting insights to some of the local Ballot Measures ( M - Metro Transit tax; A - Open Space tax; HHH - Homelessness Bond Initiative).
And Paul Edelman and Ranger Walt Young gave us a good description of the need for Measure FF - Mountain Recreation and Conservation parcel tax for houses south of Ventura Blvd.
And further thanks to Andrew for giving us an update and handling question on the development proposals for Rocketdyne, the Promenade, Off Broadway, the Post Office property, the Old Daily News building, and the recent proposal for Tree Land (by Valley Circle and just north of the west freeway entrance).

POSITIONS TAKEN BY THE WHHO BOARD
1. We have worked hard with the community to make the Westfield "Village" the best it could be for the Valley and will continue to do so in the future as well.
2. We have taken the position against the Valley Fair having a permanent home at Pierce College. We have always taken the position that this land is for Education and is to be used only for projects that are part of the education curriculum and run by Pierce, not a controlling outside entity. The 51 st Agricultural District has its own Board and contracts with all the vendors and decides what will be done. Save Pierce for the quality education it is now providing and let the administration concentrate on what the community demands it do in education.
3. Waiting for the final
proposal regarding the development on the north side of Mulholland across from Louisville High. The
proposed project originally included 39 condos in a currently R1 zoned area.
neighbors and the Design Review Board were against this. We have not taken a
final position on a proposed development on the north side of Mulholland, across
from Louisville High at
You can go to Save Oak Savanna web site, for anyone wishing to learn more or get involved and voice your opinion of the development. The web site is http://www.saveoaksavanna.org
4. Oppose the unconditional paving of dirt Mulholland.
5. Since 2004 We have oppose any further conversion of light manufacturing, small business office space to very dense apartment complexes without replacement in kind of the facilities demolished in Warner Center.
