Preserving this land in 2012 effectively doubled the amount of available green space in La Crescenta. Thanks to Supervisor Antonovich and the County of Los Angeles, Bank of America, Crescenta Valley Group of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club, First Pacific Advisors, LLC, Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley, La Crescenta Women’s Club, Montrose-La Crescenta Kiwanis Club, San Fernando Valley Audubon Society and Wells Fargo, along with 251 individuals who gave generously to help secure the land for the Rosemont Preserve in 2011 and 2012. Thanks to the Crescenta Valley community for its tremendous support.
And we offer a special thank you to Terry Villanueva. She suggested that we purchase the property from her at a substantial discount. During the closing celebration at the Rosemont Preserve Terry was overheard to say “this is the happiest day of my life!” Well Terry, you’ve made our community happy for years to come – we are eternally grateful!
