Montebello Hills Project Could Include Retail - Opponents Call it 'Dog & Pony Show'
Three new alternatives have been added to the Montebello Hills development project, two of which would include a mixture of retail and housing space on the 488-acre property off the 60 Freeway. Former Montebello City Administration and current city consultant Larry Kosmont at the Montebello city council meeting on Jan. 9 updated the city on its economic development projects, including the proposed Montebello Hills community, the Costco expansion and the Monterey Park Market Place.
Opponents to the project said they were caught off-guard by the presentation, which they said was disguised in the city council agenda.
Resident Linda Strong, chairperson for the Save The Montebello Hills Sierra Club Task Force, however, told EGP that had the community been made aware that the project was going to be discussed, opponents would have been out in greater force. She called Kosmonts presentation little more than a dog and pony show.

As hilltop residential units cost every city more for their services than they pay, the only way for the proposed development to bring money into the city is for the Hills to be made into a natural open space park, some kind of retail on a vastly smaller footprint, or a combination of the two.
The only type of development that should be forbidden on such dangerous ground is residential. Look at Wildomar, Baldwin Hills, Love Canal for cautionary examples.
