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.
