The developer of  THE WEST VILLAGE recently held a community forum. To view the entire slideshow  go here .  The password is G$ln3CS7     

How will this affect traffic safety
on our main evacuation route,
Kanan Road? 

In the 8/6/20 edition of the Acorn, West Village developer Ted Snyder states, “We’re cognizant of the traffic issues and the concerns with respect to the traffic congestion (at the intersection) but we feel that our project has the design and appropriate size and exits to not impact traffic.”

The driveway from this project exists across oncoming southbound Kanan Road traffic, just south of the intersection of Kanan & Agoura Rds. Presumably, northbound left hand turns across the same uncontrolled lanes into the project will be allowed, as well. This intersection is already heavily congested and has been the object of major concern for years.  

The developer is surely cognizant of the traffic issues and concerns at that intersection. Everyone is. Whether he truly believes or cares that his project is sure to cause significant problems there is question altogether. 




The southwest corner of Kanan and Agoura Roads has served as "the Christmas Tree Lot" and "the Pumpkin Patch" for many years. The site currently sits vacant, but for the red and black "For Lease" sign.


The project planned for this location is called

"The West Village".

At right, JL Properties webpage currently offering retail and restaurant space for lease.  A link to last year's (2018) sales brochure is found


A more recent, somewhat confusing, link is found here:

Aerial view of The West Village site plan shows 44,969 square feet of mixed used construction + 64 residences (25,200 square feet and underground parking). This is from the 2018 plan. The new version is larger.
