Scholl Canyon Landfill Report

At the GOCHA Annual Meeting held on September 11, 2019, Justin King and Marie Freeman presented a report about the current landfill proposal.

GOCHA Annual Meeting Wednesday, Sept 11, 7:30pm

We hope everyone can attend the Glenoaks Canyon Homeowner's Association ("GOCHA") Annual Meeting on Wednesday September 11th at 7:30 pm. The meeting will be held at Glenoaks Park in the Joe Bridges Clubhouse.

Between the recent “Colorado Fire” last month that threatened many homes in the canyon and the ongoing developments at the Scholl Canyon Landfill, it is more important than ever to come together as a community.

Please join us at the Annual Meeting to discuss lessons learned from the recent fire and the steps GOCHA is taking in preparation for potential future events in conjunction with our local fire and police departments.

The GOCHA team has also put together an informative presentation about the proposed Biogas Project at the Scholl landfill which has us concerned for a number of reasons. Our two presenters are well qualified for this role. Board Member Marie Freeman has become a recognized expert on all aspects of the Scholl Canyon Landfill and has done an outstanding job keeping us informed about what is going on. Board Member Justin King, fairly new to the Board, has quickly come forward at this time to offer his expertise as an environmental scientist. We are so proud that their recent presentation to the Glendale Environmental Coalition won GOCHA not only their support, but the support of the Sierra Club! This presentation will be enlightening and hopefully will inspire you to get involved in this project that involves all of us here in the canyon.

I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday night. And if you can’t attend, please consider contributing to our Disaster Preparedness Program or the Landfill Legal Defense Fund.
