Red Car Property: Not A Park, It Just Looks Like One

For more than 30 years, developers have tried and failed to develop the Red Car Property.  Neighbors have been working with the Trust for Public Land, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and City Council District 13, since the property was listed for sale (a few months ago) as a development site for between 55 -175 homes. 
For decades, our neighborhood has actively fought development, including overturning a 40-unit zone change in 1995 at the City Planning Commission.
