County puts off general plan for Hacienda Heights

A plan calling for more open space in Hacienda Heights hit a roadblock Tuesday when the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors opted to put off their decision because of opposition from several landowners.

Hacienda Heights residents have worked four years to craft an updated policy that would make for more open space, more bike trails and preserve native habitat. The document, which was expected to be approved by the board, would replace the original general plan from 1978.

But several speakers at the Board of Supervisor’s meeting opposed the proposed zoning changes, saying they would decrease their property value and limit how they could develop their properties.
