Why the Hillside Open Space Education Coalition?
Preservation of open space is a long-time value of residents living in communities near the hills bordering Los Angeles and Orange counties. Constituents have relentlessly lobbied their elected officials imploring them to find a way to protect our limited natural resources, habitat and view shed.
The Hillside Open Space Education Coalition (HOSEC) was formed in response to this overwhelming appeal from residents throughout the area. HOSEC was established to find ways to preserve strategic parcels of hillside open space from the threat of development; to prevent unwanted impacts on existing traffic congestion, schools, community infrastructure, and runoff pollution, as well as the regional wildlife and open space corridor.
The mission of the Hillside Open Space Education Coalition is to advance the long-standing and unwavering goal of member communities to preserve and acquire open space in the hills bordering Los Angeles and Orange Counties in order to safeguard the environment, maintain high quality of life and reduce traffic congestion.
