Save Angeles Forest for Everyone - S.A.F.E. - CA High Speed Rail S.A.F.E. was organized by concerned residents and community leaders from Shadow Hills, Lake View Terrace, Kagel Canyon, La Tuna Canyon, Sunland/Tujunga and Sun Valley. Our mission is to stop the California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) from studying and building a high speed rail line through our communities and the adjacent Angeles National Forest and Big Tujunga Wash via tunnels, bridges or at-grade tracks as part of the �East Corridor of the Palmdale to Burbank project section.� The proposal would have devastating and irreversible impacts to the character of our rural and equestrian communities, local water supplies and wildlife, road infrastructure and air quality, and would violate the sensitive ecosystems protected by the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument and the Angeles National Forest.
