In August 2006, new KB Homes fencing went up at the entrance to Runkle Canyon, patrolled by an around the clock security guard. The reaction was swift and concerned residents addressed an August 21, 2006 Simi Valley City Council meeting including Patricia Coryell and Rev. John Southwick pictured below.
Patricia Coryell addressed the council about the dangers of building in Runkle Canyon.
Coryell had warned the council of the dangers of the site two years earlier in 2004.
The Reverend John Southwick spoke to the
council, the first of many times he
approached these government officials about
the Runkle Canyon development.
