End Hazardous Illegal Junkyard on Residential Property
We, the undersigned residents of the Kester Ridge neighborhood in Van Nuys, CA, 91411, urge you to investigate and directly address the improper activity going on at the residential property located at 6537 Columbus Ave, Van Nuys, CA, 91411.
This residential property, in violation of using a residence as a business, is operating as an unlicensed, illegal junk yard housing 50+ cars, trucks, boats and jet skis filled with oil and gasoline. These numerous vehicles present consequential danger to our neighborhood such as but not limited to: extreme fire danger to surrounding dwellings including a new 60+ unit apartment house constructed of wood, children getting hurt or locked in a vehicle, environmental hazard of vehicles leaking toxins into soil.
Additionally, this unlicensed, illegal junkyard is an improper use of a residence and is degrading the neighborhood and affecting the residents and real estate values. Large, loud trucks that carry cars, boats and trucks load and unload at all hours are directly violating the local noise ordinance. Further, the improper use of the residence to house 50 plus vehicles is a blight in Van Nuys, more specifically the Kester Ridge area, and is directly sabotaging the residents efforts to improve and rejuvenate this long standing Los Angeles neighborhood.
