100 teenagers could turn Hasley into Burbank

My wife and I moved from Burbank to the Hasley Canyon area five years ago. We had horses in our backyard in Burbank, Griffith Park with its equestrian trails and some deer and coyotes.

The main reason we moved was because of the traffic and traffic noise. The teenagers speeding up and down our street made it impossible for the kids to play ball out in front of the house.

The parents of the teenagers actually called the cops to stop our kids from playing ball and hockey in the street. They were afraid they would be on the receiving end of a wrongful death lawsuit.

And with houses built right on top of each other, you had no privacy or serenity.

When we saw Hasley Canyon, we knew we had found the right place. We spent every penny we had from the sale of our Burbank house to buy this house on the corner of Gilmour and Hasley Canyon.

Quiet, serene, with a huge yard set way back from the road.

Now, just four years into it, we are faced with the prospect of watching one land use decision turn Hasley Canyon into Burbank right outside our front door.

The only difference is now we might get as many as 100 teenagers driving up and down the road.

The proposed Monticello School will destroy the serenity of the canyon. Why are some people so blind to simple beauty? Will we really not stop until its all gone?

Wake up, America.
