It appears that the current development plans were formulated without prior due diligence, such as insuring compliance with CEQA, contacting the state Office of Historic Preservation, consulting the Native American Historical Commission and the local Tongva and Acjachemen peoples, or seeking advice from a number of knowledgeable local archaeologists. I would suggest there are ample grounds for canceling the proposed plans and inquiring into the circumstances that gave rise to the present problems. Also, as I will explain below, I do not believe any new archaeological work is needed or advisable by contract with any archaeological firm. (I have no affiliation of any kind with any archaeological firm.)
