Stop development in the Arroyo Seco and revise the Hahamongna Master Plan

The Hahamongna is the upper Arroyo Seco watershed. It's behind the Devil's Gate Dam in a narrow area of Pasadena dividing Altadena from La Cañada next to NASA/JPL. By virtue of water and sediment, trail horses, hikers, bird watchers, it has become a wildland area, a naturalized garden of earthly delights. The City of Pasadena wants to develop it as if it were an urban park, and the County of Los Angeles wants to scrape it out to maintain the dam. There are protections for Hahamongna but all entities seem hell bent on dismantling them for their own interests. What about the greater good? What about listening to those more educated, scientific, and visionary: the public that has been attending meetings. The public has offered hours of expertise, and documentation to the city council, the Hahamongna Watershed Advisory Committee, and Los Angeles County.

The public has stated many times that they do not want development in Hahamongna, however, the public is continually ignored. This is NOT what democracy looks like.
