Leave Lower Lunada aLone

Lunada Bay is Already Beautiful, with unobstructed ocean views and access to the coastline below.   The proposal by the self-appointed Beautify Lunada Bay committee, to transform our precious cliff-sides/bluff-tops, will most likely result in the addition of Cliff-top fences and Keep Out signs, as is the case at Every cliff with public access in the City of Rancho Palos Verdes.

Historically our pocket parks have been left unimproved.  City sanctioned improvements that invite the public to the cliff areas can only become a liability to the city over time.   Landscaping now means indefinite costs to the taxpayers to maintain the landscaping over time.  

According to documents and statements from volunteers who are working for the local landscape architect who is behind the project, the pilot project across from Lunada Bay Elementary School will have an educational garden.  It will transform the current unimproved canyon-side into a landscaped area ("native" plants and crushed granite defined walkways, rocks to sit on, occasional trash cans).  Organizers have assured that this pilot will not have a fence along the canyon/cliff edge that would obstruct any views.

To this, taxpayers and parents must ask: "What, no fence?  The City will sanction creation of an "Attractive Nuisance" (legal jargon) along a cliff, that is inviting grade school children, but have no fence to keep someone from falling in?"

Parents of Lunada Bay Elementary School children can't let this happen...

Taxpayers in PVE cannot let the city step into more legal liability...

Residents who Love our natural un-manicured and un-fenced cliff lines must speak out !!

Please consider signing this petition so that your voice may be heard.  On behalf of those who love and cherish the very, very special and unique place we live, THANK YOU.
