Local News in Brief : Supervisors Oppose Plan to Block Landfill

The Board of Supervisors has voted to strongly oppose a pending city of Los Angeles development plan that would block the use of three Westside canyons as a regional landfill.

The board, on a 3-1 vote, directed its staff to argue at City Council hearings against a provision in the proposed Mulholland Scenic Parkway Specific Plan that prohibits development of Mission, Rustic and Sullivan canyons for garbage disposal.

Last May, three of the five supervisors--Deane Dana, Mike Antonovich and Ed Edelman--said they either opposed a landfill in the canyons or that they would consider it only as a last resort to solve long-range garbage disposal problems.
