Over 200 Residents Show Up to Landfill Expansion Meeting

Over 200 residents and concerned neighbors showed up at the Joe Bridges Clubhouse on Monday night to hear comments from Steve Zurn, the city's Public Works Director about the proposal to extend the life and capacity of the Scholl Canyon landfill. Lot's of good information was exchanged and it is clear that this is definitely not a simple issue. Residents asked many questions of the Director about the expansion plans and suggested alternate solutions. The Glendale News Press wrote an article about the meeting that goes in to some detail about what transpired.

The public comments period has been extended to May 30th. To read more about the Environmental Impact Report or to make a public comment about the proposed expansion, visit the Glendale City website: Draft EIR for Scholl Canyon Landfill Expansion.

We will be posting more information to the GOCHA website as things develop. This is an important issue that will affect all canyon residents. Thanks to all who showed up to the meeting. It was great to have our collective voices heard.
