Legislator wants to give cities say in conservancy
BURBANK - A Burbank lawmaker announced Tuesday he will introduce a bill to expand a mountain conservancy committee to include representatives from Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena and La Canada Flintridge.
``The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is the primary agency charged with preserving ever-more precious undeveloped land and natural habitats amid the encroaching urban sprawl of the Los Angeles area,'' state Sen. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, said.
``I want to ensure that the four cities have a voice at and develop a closer working relationships with the conservancy so together they can grapple with the conservation issues confronting this region.''
He said the conservancy was created by the state Legislature in 1979 and has acquired more than 35,000 acres of parkland from a 450,000-acre zone in the Santa Monica Mountains and adjacent mountains surrounding the Los Angeles basin.
