For more than four years we have been engaged in a struggle to prevent the canals from being taken from us by a project which would turn this area into a private and exclusive marina. It is int he midst of this struggle that the Canal Festival was created, in an effort to demonstrate our determination to preserve the canals and the unique community that thrives here. We are now at a crucial point in this struggle. We begin court action against the threatening project tomorrow, September 18. We are in the process of planning a playground to be built by the community. We are preparing an alternative plan for the development of the area following these guidelines: That the canals should be restored to insure the health and safety of the residents, but without destroying their basic character as canals and without abridging access to them by the people of Los Angeles. That public land and other funds or resources be used only in such ways as serve public needs. That the plannig of any future developments for the area include the residents of the area at all stages of the planning. Just as today we share our feelings for our community with you we urge you to share our struggle, understanding that if the canals are lost it is a loss for us all. If you can help with any of our projects or want information call 821-5421 [written on back]
