Dear Honorable Mayor and City Council:
I understand you are in the review process of the Agoura Village Specific Plan. The location of the planned development is adjacent to the natural habitat where wildlife is abundant. The use of rodent poisons in this area will negatively impact our wildlife. The current plan does not include information on rodent-prevention methods.
I ask that you include in the Agoura Village Specific Plan information about clean sanitation, alternatives to rodent poisons, and practices that are not conducive to attracting rodents.
Below are suggestions for the Agoura Village Specific Plan:
I appreciate your opposition to the sale and use of rodenticides, as noted in
RESOLUTION NO. 14-1742.
I look forward to the day when we no longer have to worry about the dangers rodent poisons pose to our wildlife, domestic pets, and children in Agoura Hills.
