COMMUNITY INPUT NEEDED FOR HACIENDA HEIGHTS COMMUNITY CENTER PROJECT
Los Angeles, March 3, 2009 – Supervisor Don Knabe is inviting residents, business owners, and other interested persons to attend two upcoming community workshops on the proposed Hillgrove Community Center in Hacienda Heights.
The Supervisor initiated a community process to explore priorities for using the tipping fee money coming from the last expansion of the Puente Hills Landfill. This effort over the last two years has resulted in strong community support for the development of a community center on an approximately nine acre property on Turnbull Canyon Road, just north of the 60 Freeway. The County has entered into an option agreement with the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District for a long-term ground lease of this property.
Two community workshops are scheduled to obtain community input into the Hillgrove Community Center Master Plan: Monday, March 16, 2009 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Los Altos High School Gymnasium, located at 15325 East Los Robles Avenue.
“I look forward to learning what facilities and programs are important to the Hacienda Heights community and thank in advance the good citizens of this community for their efforts to help bring this important improvement to Hacienda Heights,” said Supervisor Knabe.
In addition to the upcoming community workshops, a brief survey is available at http://www.knabe.com/cities/haciendaheights.html where interested persons can also express their opinions of what facilities and programs are most needed in the Hacienda Heights community.
