Supporters in bright green and opponents in various shades of red attended a meeting at Rancho Pico Junior High March 1, 2017 to voice their support or concerns about the proposed expansion at the Chiquita Canyon landfill for county commissioners who will decide on the fate of the project.

Community discussion about the Chiquita Canyon Landfill controversy will continue Wednesday, April 19.

Over 100 Santa Clarita residents shared their two-minute testimonies at the first public forum on March 1, but time did not allow for everyone to get their turn.

A follow up public hearing will be held at 9 a.m. on the 19th during the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission’s regular meeting in Downtown Los Angeles with a satellite location at Stevenson Ranch Library.

People at both locations will be able to interact with one another in real-time via projection screens.

Planning commissioners will decide whether to accept, or make changes to, the planning department’s recommendation after the hearing.

Santa Clarita residents are invited to go to either location.

The Santa Clarita address is 25950 The Old Road and the Los Angeles location is 320 W. Temple Street in Suite 150.

    Will the community commentary feature rational facts and/or appeals to emotion? I predict a distinct bias towards the latter.

    • Erica Larsen-Dockray

      Check out past hearings… the majority of the community commentary features lots of rational facts. Better question… Will any of the supporters’ commentary not include their financial tie to the landfill?? So far I’ve heard one and it was a bogus appeal to the emotional.

      • Ron Bischof

        Facts remain so without regard to source.

        Can you provide a link to local community comments at hearings that feature rational facts rather than appeals to emotion and FUD?

          A broadcast, and I believe a transcript, of the March 1st hearing is available on the Regional Planning website. There are many emotional appeals, of course, as this issue touches many on a personal level. However, many facts are included as well.
