Friends of the Santa Monica Mountains:
Tomorrow, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, will consider extending a very important urgency ordinance that temporarily prohibits the expansion of vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains North Area Plan (the land use zoning area adjacent to the recently adopted Local Coastal Program). The county needs this crucial time to adequately study
the impacts,
and devise a solution to the unparalleled surge and deluge of vineyard applications bombarding regional planning.
If approved, these vineyards
will
consume and destroy hundreds and hundreds of acres of prime habitat in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains.
There is a huge concerted effort by the pro-vineyard lobbyists to defeat this proposed urgency ordinance extension tomorrow - which is why we implore you to step up and send an email without delay to the county - expressing your support for the extension today. Many of you will remember the similar battle we had during the LCP hearings.
Please do this:
1. Cut and past the email below and send immediately to the Board of Supervisors atPublicHearing@bos.lacounty.gov.
Please also distribute it to your HOA members, neighbors and friends.
It is imperative to get your letters of support in
to the Board TODAY.
2.
Attend
the Board of Supervisors hearing tomorrow - Tuesday, July 28, to voice your support for extending the interim ordinance.
As always, we are grateful for your help.
Sincerely,
Kim Lamorie
President
Las Virgenes Homeowners Federation, Inc., of the Santa Monica Mountains

Honorable Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors:
RE: AGENDA ITEM #4 - SUPPORT - EXTENDING INTERIM ORDINANCE 2015-0022U
TEMPORARILY PROHIBITING THE EXPANSION OF VINEYARDS IN SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS NORTH AREA PLAN
I/we strongly support Regional Planning's recommendation to extend Interim Ordinance No. 2015-0022U for 10 months and 15 days - to temporarily prohibit the expansion of vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains - North Area Plan/Community Standards District (NAP/CSD).
It is crucial to enable and give
the county enough
time to study
both
the impacts and a potential zoning amendment to address the unprecedented
, recent, overwhelming number of
applications for vineyards.
These applications raise significant concerns related to water supply, water quality, and land use compatibility. Vineyards require the removal of natural habitat and frequently,
extensive grading due to steep slopes - thereby increasing
runoff, erosion, and sedimentation, and caus
ing
pesticides and fertilizers to infiltrate waterways.
The cumulative effect of vineyards will not only impair the area's fragile watersheds, but, negatively impact the public's scenic resources, denuding hillsides and ridgelines, irreparably damaging and transforming the character of the Santa Monica Mountains. Vineyards fragment vegetation and inhibit wildlife movement.
The Board found that the lack of appropriate regulations and development standards for vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains North Area CSD may lead to development that would negatively impact water supply and quality, and detract from the physical appearance, condition, and character of the area. Unless Interim Ordinance No. 2015-0022U is extended, an irreversible incompatibility of land uses
will
occur as a result of the establishment or expansion of vineyards in the affected area, all to the detriment of public health, safety, and welfare.
?Please extend Interim Ordinance 2015-0022U.
Sincerely,
Your name
