You Spoke, We Listened

The Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning is committed to maintaining an ongoing exchange of information between us and you, the residents of Hacienda Heights. You have a lot to teach us about your community, your issues, and your vision for the future. We are here to provide technical expertise and to answer any questions you may have about the Community Plan Update. When you speak, we listen.

We’ve created this form to respond to questions you’ve asked during community meetings. The information provided is in response to inquiries received at the June 12, 2007 Kickoff Meeting. We hope this information will be useful as we continue the Community Plan Update Process. Please let us know what you think!

YOU ASKED: What can we do about graffiti in our community?
ANSWER: The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works supports the control of graffiti through their Graffiti Abatement Section, which manages crews throughout the County. If you spot graffiti in your community, you can report it to the Department of Public Works in two ways:
  • Contact the Graffiti Hotline at (800) 675-4357. Live operators are available to take your call 24/7 with a target response time of 48-hours or less.
  • Visit the Stop Graffiti website at http://ladpw.org. Click on the “Stop Graffiti” icon to submit your graffiti removal requests.
YOU ASKED: What’s going on with the 60 Freeway expansion?
ANSWER: CalTrans, the state agency responsible for highway, bridge, and rail transportation planning, construction, and maintenance, held a public meeting about the Pomona Freeway (SR-60) High Occupancy Vehicles (HOV) Lane Construction Project on Wednesday, June 20, 2007 at 7 PM at Los Altos High School in Hacienda Heights. The project will add one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction on the Pomona Freeway between the San Gabriel River Freeway (I-605) and Brea Canyon Road. The project is projected to cost $125 million and construction will take place from Spring 2007 to Summer 2011.
  • You can view the documents related to this project at the Hacienda Heights Community Plan update website, or contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), CalTrans Public Affairs Officer, at 213-897-0303 for more information.
YOU ASKED: What’s going to happen when the Puente Hills Landfill closes?
ANSWER: The Puente Hills Landfill is scheduled to close by November 1, 2013. When this happens, any portion of landfill in which fill has been placed will be designated as open space for recreational use. This future park will be managed by the LA County Department of Parks and Recreation. The LA County Sanitation Districts will retain ownership over the land and will continue to maintain and operate any environmental control systems for protection of public health. In order to establish the appropriate funding for development, operation, and maintenance of the future park, the LA County Sanitation Districts is currently working with the Department of Parks and Recreation and a consultant to develop options for what type of park may be built on the site. The options being considered range from very passive uses to very active uses. In the near future, five conceptual plans for park use will be presented to the community for their comments and input. The conceptual plans will be refined according to the comments received. Costs estimates associated with each plan will be prepared after the plans have been revised. The Final Feasibility Study report is estimated to be finished and released to the public by the end of 2008. Final decision of what the ultimate use of the park would be will be made when the Department of Parks and Recreation prepares their park Master Plan.
  • Keep a look out in your local papers and on the Hacienda Heights Improvement Association’s website for more information. The Department of Regional Planning will also update you on news about the landfill as it becomes available.
