Guest Speakers: Scott Silverstein, Board Secretary of El Camino
A lot has been happening at El Camino Real Charter High School the past few months, and two of the school’s new leadership team will discuss changes and future goals that could impact the entire WH community. Scott Silverstein, the newly elected ECR Board Secretary will be joined by another newly appointed leader at the WHHO meeting at Kaiser Hospital on February 22. We think it’s important that homeowners have an understanding of what the new leaders of El Camino plan for the school and how they see its future role in the community.”

WHHO Board in support of Measure "S" on March 7th
The Board of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization has voted to support Measure "S" - the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative ballot measure - appearing on the March 7th ballot. According to WHHO Executive Vice President John Walker, the majority of the WHHO Board members believe that passing Measure "S" will bring certainty to the City Planning process and stop the proliferation of spot zoning approvals that encourage developers to build projects that do not conform to the existing City General Plan, the existing Community Plans or the existing Specific Plans.

POSITIONS TAKEN BY THE WHHO BOARD
1. The Board of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization has voted to support Measure "S" - the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative ballot measure - appearing on the March 7th ballot. According to WHHO Executive Vice President John Walker, the majority of the WHHO Board members believe that passing Measure "S" will bring certainty to the City Planning process and stop the proliferation of spot zoning approvals that encourage developers to build projects that do not conform to the existing City General Plan, the existing Community Plans or the existing Specific Plans.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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
5. Oppose the unconditional paving of dirt Mulholland.
6. Since 2004 We have opposed 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.
