Big mound news: today the Los Angeles City Council voted to cover a large mound of second-hand asphalt at Van Nuys Airport with a tarp. The asphalt, which is used for street repairs and ranges in size from “fine dust” to “human fist,” according to the LA Daily News, has allegedly been blowing into nearby houses and yards, making neighbors in Lake Balboa “increasingly frustrated,” according to the City Council motion approved today. The city has already “reduced the pile’s size from 30 feet to 17 feet” and today voted to cover the mound, stop adding to the mound, and come up with a longer-term strategy for dealing with the mound. “For me, the ultimate goal is to have [the mound] removed,” says City Councilmember Nury Martinez.

Curbed – Hiking LA: Proposed New Trails Would Lead to Great Hollywood Sign Views

Griffith Park, Los Angeles’s largest and most-visited green space, has 53 miles of trails snaking through it, but a proposed new project would increase that number considerably, reports KPCC. The plan is to take about 180 acres of untouched, LADWP-owned land near Universal City (known as the Upper Hollywood Reservoir) and open it up to the public with hiking trails on about 11 miles, plus a parking lot. Opening paths on the land would increase connectivity to Cahuenga Peak, says Councilmember Tom LaBonge, in addition to giving Angelenos more land to hike. Cahuenga is that peak next to the Hollywood Sign that the city bought at great expense a few years ago.

The project’s well on its way—the LA Department of Recreation and Parks gave the go-ahead to a license agreement that will allow it to lease the land from LADWP for 20 years. The LADWP’s board does still have to approve the agreement, but an official says it’s expected to get the green light, as it’s similar to other proposals they’ve approved.

But all the enthusiasm does not mean this is an unequivocally good plan—the organization Friends of Griffith Park says that opening the land to the public may have some unintended effects on the area’s wildlife, possibly driving out animals like deer and mountain lions, including the elusive Griffith Park mountain lion P-22. (Animals tend to shy away from areas where there’s human activity.)
