Local News in Brief : Helicopter Pad Proposal Rejected

A proposal for a commercial helicopter pad on the Calabasas Landfill was rejected Wednesday by the county Regional Planning Commission.

In addition, Supervisor Mike Antonovich has withdrawn his support for the project because of community opposition, his chief deputy said. Antonovich had earlier supported the proposal by Air One Helicopter, an Agoura Hills company, to lease landfill space for the helicopter pad from which it would make up to 16 flights a day, mostly to Los Angeles International Airport.

On Oct. 13, homeowners in the nearby Saratoga Hills area voted to oppose the helipad because of noise it would generate.
