MSM COMMENT LETTER
Welcome to Bundy Canyon Association (BCA). BCA represents you if you reside north of Sunset into the Santa Monica Mountains, between Barrington Avenue and North Bowling Green Way, including Saltair, Norman Place. We are committed to preserving quality of life, peaceful enjoyment of our property and the future value of our homes. One of our immediate concerns is Mount Saint Mary’s University’s proposal to add a vast 38,000 square foot building and recreational pool to their Chalon Campus in the northern part of our Bundy Canyon.
Sign The Petition
- Are you a concerned Brentwood Resident?
- Are you sick of sitting in traffic?
- Sign our Petition to tell Councilman Mike Bonin…
As residents are already aware of being trapped by traffic in our canyon, due to the more than 1400 commuter students the college has, any additional construction attracting outside events, sports events, extracurricular events and summer camps planned in their proposal, will have adverse effects on traffic and our quality of life in Bundy Canyon.
Impact: Bundy Canyon Residents will experience additional traffic, more noise, more pollution caused by heavy construction trucks and crew driving through our streets during the proposed 24 months of pre-construction.
- An increased Fire Danger as Bundy Canyon is located in the “Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone” during the worst drought in Los Angeles history.
- Difficulty of access by Fire Fighters and Emergency Service Vehicles throughout the years of preparation and construction is something we cannot afford.
- A larger student enrollment at Mount Saint Mary’s (current enrollment listed at 1,400+ with an MSMU ask of 2,200 total student number projected.
- Additional students mean additional classes, special events held on campus, visitors, staff and supply trucks speeding through our neighborhood at all hours of the day, every day. MSMU proposes evening classes and events as well, lending to limited peace and enjoyment for our residents.
What we need from our residents?
- Get Involved: Only with homeowner involvement, intervention, and tenacity can we mitigate issues affecting our wonderful neighborhood.
- Email Us: Make sure to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and share with us your comments and concerns.
- Stay tuned: We’ll keep you Informed with newsletters and neighborhood get togethers.
- Take action now: Together, we can keep our Bundy Canyon the home we know and love.
- Check out the DEIR Review: Please take a look at what we have done on your behalf in addressing MSMU’s DEIR (Environmental Review) by hiring our fire expert, land use expert, and traffic expert.

I have lived in Brentwood for 49 years and have watched this sleepy village change, not always for the better, but I recognize that progress and growth is inevitable. What should not be inevitable are the changes in our beautiful hills and canyons. I did not expect the trucks and busses that are filling Bundy Canyon every hour and on the half hour. I miss the quiet mornings now filled with delivery trucks with their noise and exhaust, I miss people driving slowly and not making illegal left turns, I miss it feeling safe to take a walk on the these quiet streets even though we have no sidewalks. What I realize is that I need to step up and be counted before I discover more things to miss!
Bundy Canyon Resident – 49 years
I have lived on Chalon Road (off upper Bundy) for over 20 years. It’s been a treat to live on the edge of the wilderness, yet so close to all the services that Brentwood has to offer. We’re all experiencing increasing traffic and congestion. Let’s band together to address the particular concerns of our canyon and do what we can to make life better here. Bonus: let’s get to know our neighbors! What fun to meet the other locals and work together.
Bundy Canyon Resident – 20 years
I bought my first house in Brentwood in my 20’s then purchased my second home north of sunset with my husband a few years later. I felt safe living in a hometown type of community. But, now, I feel what brought me to the Westside is being degraded, slowly being chipped away. Not by those of us who live here, but by politicians, who are more focused on expansion than anything else. It’s quite sad, really. Enough is enough. That’s why I joined Bundy Canyon Assoc.
