Meetings on Proposed Development at the BKK Landfill Site
WEST COVINA, CA., November 22, 2017 – The City of West Covina will be hosting two community meetings regarding the proposed development by Singpoli Group LLC at the former BKK Landfill site. The meetings will provide the community an opportunity to listen to Singpoli’s proposed development, provide feedback on the development, and to have questions answered by both the City and Singpoli on any future development on the site. The two meetings will be held on the following dates and locations:
- Monday, December 4, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Cameron Community Center (1305 E. Cameron Avenue, West Covina, CA 91790)
- Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Shadow Oak Park (2121 E. Shadow Oak Drive, West Covina, CA 91792)
The proposed site of the development is on property owned by the former Redevelopment Agency (Agency) that were intended to be developed into a municipal golf course. As required for the dissolution of redevelopment, the Agency received approval by the State of California’s Department of Finance for the Long Range Property Management Plan (LRPMP) in December of 2015. The LRPMP calls for the Agency to sell the three golf course assets for development however does not require that a golf course be developed at the site.
Singpoli unveiled its development proposal at the November 7, 2017 City Council Meeting. The proposal includes an equestrian center for horse training, an outdoor pavilion for event space, a hotel, K-9 training facility, virtual reality entertainment, aerial adventure park, and a potential solar greenhouse facility.
The City encourages residents and stakeholders to attend the meetings and provide both the City and Singpoli with comments and feedback on the proposed development project.
