Agoura Horse Property - Custom & Equestrian Real Estate by Nona Green

 
Wednesday, November 04, 2015


On September 1, 2015, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the Historic Preservation Ordinance. As of Oct.1, applications are being taken to deem a property a Landmark and afford the owner certain protections and benefits. The ordinance was passed to identify properties of historic interest and importance for the educational, cultural, economic, and general welfare of the public.

There are two properties that just came on the market for sale in Agoura which meet some of the criteria for registration as a LANDMARK.

Agoura-Woodland Hills Pony Club

The United States Pony Club is an institution dating back to 1954. The USPC aims to teach children to be well-rounded horse people with complete knowledge of riding on the flat, in the open, jumping, and horse care.

"The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., develops character, leadership, confidence and a sense of community in youth..."

The Agoura-Woodland Hills Pony Club is one of the first clubs on the west coast and resides on 52 acres at the end of Chesbro Rd. The land, including the adjacent 30 acres leased to a herb farm, is beautiful - and is for sale.

Shanti Anantam Ashram

The importance of Alice Coltrane to 20th-Century music cannot be overstated. While she passed away in 2007, Coltrane's work as a composer and multi-instrumentalist in the realm of avant-garde and spiritual jazz continues to influence legions of musicians.

Coltrane quest for spiritual enlightenment inspired her artistry. Along with the Beatles and other musicians in the 1960's, Coltrane introduced the western world to Indian religions. She established her Vedantic Center in 1976 as a nonprofit organization. The Center still serves as a sanctuary today on 47 acres in Triunfo Canyon. "The land is conducive to spiritual practice and development." It is sublime - and it is for sale.

Could either of these properties qualify as a historical landmark? If not, they will still be an important footnote in the annals of Agoura history - and now they are for sale. Call Nona Green for more information 818 426-2292

Two Women to Clean up the Mess

Illece Buckley Weber and Linda Northrup were elected to fill the two vacancies on the Agoura Hills City Council. Voters were adament that future decisions of the council not go the way they have been.

When Agoura Hills City Council members agreed to sell the 71 Acre Chesebro Meadow, the goal was to settle a lawsuit with the buyer. In hindsight, the expense of continuing the suit, and the liability should the city have lost in court, was a paltry sum compared to the value of the meadow measured in dollars AND in its critical benefit to the survival of many species in the Santa Monica Mountains.

The city figured they might lose the lawsuit, and their defendant was the only buyer to come forward. The public did not have any vote on the matter - a deal was struck. While it seemed like the only option at the time, the sale of the Chesebro Meadow for less than $1M was unfortunate. The sale was contingent on the Final Environmental Impact Report certification. While there are other conditions to be met, including the annexation of the land to the city, certifying the FEIR was the first step.

The second mistake may have been a foregone conclusion - tethered to the sale agreement. At the City Planning Commission and Council meeting, experts gave compelling testimony why the FEIR was inadequate, and yet 3 out of 5 planners, and 3 out of 5 council members voted to certify that document.

On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, registered voters of the City of Agoura Hills had the opportunity to elect two members of the City Council.

Three candidates voted that the FEIR inadequately addressed fire evacuation safety or the potential effects on the development to a proposed wildlife crossing. They were Chris Anstead, Linda Northrup, and Illece Buckley Weber.

The Old Agoura Homeowner's Association endorsed Northrup and Buckley Weber because they deemed the FEIR inadequate. Their votes counted this time.
