on the record . . .

On this page -- below this introduction -- are documents you can download which will provide important insights about the proposed project at the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve.

They are grouped according to these categories: Objections: Habitat Alteration; Objections to Entire Project; Objections to Annenberg Plans, Protect Ballona Principles, Annenberg Privatization Plans, and the lengthy and very revealing set of 408 Applications to the Army Corps of Engineers. These include some of the actual documents submitted for permitting of this destructive plan -- designed and developed mostly behind closed doors -- as well as additional documents that shine some light on what has otherwise been a secretly-negotiated deal with the Annenberg Foundation. They are at bottom and you can see by the nature of the applications how very extensive the bulldozing and resculpting plans are.

Throughout the preceding documents are many opinions by organizations that have taken a hard look at the industrial habitat alteration that is masquerading as a restoration.
