On Tuesday, March 8 Rep. Adam Schiff will host a town hall event in Los Angeles, and another town hall along with Rep. Julia Brownley in Oak Park on Wednesday, March 9. The town halls will allow constituents, advocates and homeowners to discuss the final report on the Rim of the Valley Corridor Special Resources Study that examined the possibility of expanding the boundary of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA) to include the Rim of the Valley. The report recommends a significant expansion of the existing recreation area, and has been delivered to Congress and the public.
Schiff is working on legislation to make this expansion a reality, and is gathering input from community stakeholders.
The March 8 event will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Los Angeles Zoo, Witherbee Auditorium, 5333 Zoo Drive in Los Angeles. The second town hall on March 9 will also be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and held at Oak Park High School Room G-9, 899 N. Kanan Road in Oak Park.
