Golf course development a potential disaster

Having read all of the letters opposing the development of 224 units on the site of the Verdugo Hills Golf Course, I have been surprised no one has brought up the possibility of fire.

Just imagine fire engines trying to get down Tujunga Canyon Road or La Tuna Canyon to stop a fast-spreading brush fire. Urban sprawl was mentioned as one of the major factors in the tragic Yarnell, Arizona fire. Of course developers think only of the almighty dollar. No thought is given about possible loss of life.

Wake up people, the location of this development is a disaster waiting to happen.
