PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS EMAIL TO THE LAST PERIOD!

The more equestrian bodies attending this Calabasas City Council REGULAR MEETING – WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 2017, the more impact we will have.

For those of you who need a start on a letter to the City of Calabasas, here are some ideas for you:

The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, commemorates an epic journey in 1775-76 of settlers and soldiers from central Mexico to San Francisco By, led by Lt. Col. Juan Bautista de Anza. The trail is 1,200 miles, and operated by the National Park Service since 1990. Thousands of hikers and equestrians explore this historic route each year.

The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trailhead will be visually buried behind the Rondell Oasis Hotel – completely out-of-sight – from all roadways nearby.

There is no CRITICAL designation by road frontage for SIGNAGE that the trailhead location is behind the hotel.

There is no CRITICAL allocation for horsetrailer or school bus parking or adequate turn-around for large vehicles, such as stated in the United States Department of Agriculture and Forest Service requirements, December 2007, “Equestrian Design Guidebook for trails, Trailheads, and Campgrounds, Chapter 8 – Designing Roads and Parking Areas.

This directive book was developed with the cooperation of the United States Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration.

Also critically neglected are the major needs of the public who wish to use this trailhead, as it is a major connection to the Millennium Trail and the Las Virgenes View Trail leading south to Malibu Creek State Park and the National Backbone Trail (67 miles) of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. To the north, with a little difficulty negotiating the public roadways, this Anza Trailhead leads into the old Ahmanson Ranch, now parklands leading into the Simi Hills and Valley, Santa Susanna parklands, and eventually to the east, the Rim of the Valley (San Fernando valley) Trail.

Also Critically missing are bathrooms and potable water for all trail users.

The City of Calabasas should not ignore these Critical Major trail connections, which you have had the privilege to help connect.

HELP!!! THIS MAY BE THE LAST STAND!

READ ARTICLE... The Rondell Oasis Hotel is a “done deal” but perhaps if we can gang up together with letters FOR CRITICAL PARKING turned in before June 12th, and attend the meeting we just might make an impression.
