In the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains, at its 45th annual banquet, the Las Virgenes Homeowners Federation honored Ventura County District 2 Supervisor, Linda Parks as 2012 Citizen of the Year!
Supervisor Parks has been an open space and environmental superstar for more than two decades. She received two standing ovations from the packed crowd at the Malibou Lake Mountain Club for her outstanding record of environmental stewardship.
Above all else Supervisor Linda Parks is a person who has made a difference. Passion, conviction and an unwavering environmental ethic are all features that define her. She is a leader, a standout, among standouts.
Supervisor Parks has been a force for "good" in the Santa Monica Mountains, having overseen the purchase of thousands of acres of open space and trails. She has tightened protected tree ordinances, scenic and hillside grading protections and achieved a moratorium on development in open space to protect the greenbelt
