Residents and Foley cite a Dorothy Street extension being built by KB Home for its project to the north of Keystone as a viable alternative to extending Ermine. But Pari said Dorothy would be on the 2,000-car-a-day threshold if Ermine were not extended also. Planning commissioners will weigh the options and make a recommendation to the Santa Clarita City Council. Commissioner Dennis Ostrom said the panel will need to weigh emergency and vehicle travel times with residential impact. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CANYON COUNTRY – Despite a developer’s assurance to some worried Canyon Country residents that it will shelve plans to extend their dead-end road, the city’s interest in extending the street keeps the asphalt pot simmering. A city traffic engineer says extending Ermine Street to Golden Valley Road would reduce congestion on three nearby streets and though unpopular with some, it is necessary. “The only reason they’re backtracking is the negative reaction from the neighbors,” Ian Pari, a senior city traffic engineer, said of the developer. “I think more people are going to benefit than be impacted, but will people (on) Ermine be affected? Yes.” Traffic from Brookfield Homes’ proposed 600-plus-unit Plum Canyon housing project would not circulate through the older neighborhood, but the developer had planned to extend Ermine as a condition of building The Keystone. The city’s traffic engineers say extending Ermine to Golden Valley would better distribute traffic that overloads two of three feeder streets into and out of the established neighborhood. Pari said residents perceive a diminished quality of life if more than 2,000 cars a day travel along residential streets. Though extending Ermine would mean increasing car trips on that street from about 80 a day to possibly 2,000 a day, the decision overall makes sense, he said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Traffic studies show more than 4,500 vehicles a day travel on nearby Steinway Street. “Steinway, more than any other, needs to have some relief, in all fairness to the Steinway people,” Pari said. Brookfield has responded to residents’ pleas voiced over the past four months by proposing an alternative. “We’ve actually provided an idea for an emergency connection,” said Brookfield Homes President Adrian Foley. The company proposes transforming Ermine’s dead-end into a cul-de-sac that would provide access from Ermine to Golden Valley Road for paramedics and firetrucks. Foley said connecting Ermine to Golden Valley – with right-turn-only entry and exit – would be more of a hindrance than a help to drivers heading west.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Palestinian policemen went on a rampage over the killing of a colleague and seized the Gaza-Egypt border crossing for several hours Friday, forcing European monitors to flee in the latest sign of growing mayhem in the coastal strip. A British aid worker and her parents were released from captivity and brought to Israel early today, days after Palestinian gunmen seized the family in the southern Gaza Strip, officials said. A previously unknown group calling itself the Mujahedeen Brigades Jerusalem Branch claimed responsibility for the kidnappings and threatened to abduct more foreigners if Israel doesn’t end its “no-go” zone in the northern Gaza Strip. Friday’s border takeover and the kidnapping of the Britons fed worries that chaos in Gaza may be spreading to outsiders brought in to help develop the area following Israel’s pullout. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Gaza has experienced a wave of shootouts, kidnappings and armed takeovers of government buildings in recent months, undermining Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to impose law and order in the wake of Israel’s withdrawal from the area in September. In new violence, a 14-year-old boy was killed Friday when a powerful Palestinian family attacked a local police station for a second straight day. Their assault the previous day caused the death of the police officer that set off the furious eruption by police Friday. About 100 policemen stormed the Rafah border terminal in the morning, firing in the air and taking up positions at the crossing, security officials and witnesses said. The unarmed European observers – responsible for enforcing terms of the Israeli-Palestinian agreement that opened the border recently – took refuge in a nearby Israeli military base, forcing the terminal to halt operations. The police withdrew peacefully from the border after about three hours. Several hours later, the Europeans reopened the crossing, said Julio De La Guardia, a spokesman for the observers. The unrest could threaten international efforts to help rehabilitate Gaza, whose economy is in tatters as it emerges from five years of heavy fighting with Israel. Under the leadership of former international envoy James Wolfensohn, donors have pledged $3 billion annually for Palestinian reconstruction projects, mostly in Gaza, for the next three years. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

African countries are emerging as global green energy leaders, although electricity constraints still hamper growth in many regions of the continent. The Africa Progress Report points to inequality in pricing and a need for greater investment. Kofi Annan says that one of the alarming findings of the African Progress Report is that 621 million people in sub-Saharan Africa have a lack of access to electricity. (Image: Screen grab via YouTube) Melissa JavanSeveral African countries are emerging as leaders in the global transition to low carbon energy, according to the African Progress Panel (APR).South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda were identified as the frontrunners in the report. These countries are developing very large power generation plants that use renewable energy.The report, which was released on 5 June, revealed that South Africa generated half of the electricity in sub-Saharan Africa.The report is the annual flagship publication of the ten-member Africa Progress Panel. The panel is chaired by Kofi Annan, the Ghanaian diplomat and former secretary-general of the United Nations, and Graça Machel, the human rights advocate and board chair of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health.“The APR draws on the best research and analysis available on Africa and compiles it in a refreshing and balanced manner,” explains the panel. “The panel makes policy recommendations for African political leaders and civil society who collectively have the primary responsibility for spurring Africa’s progress.“In light of the continent’s dynamic links with the rest of the world, the APR also highlights critical steps that must be taken by leaders in the international public and private sector.”The title of this year’s Africa Progress Report is Power, People, Planet: Seizing Africa’s Energy and Climate Opportunities.Watch the press conference with the panel here:ChallengesAnnan says it is alarming that an estimated 600 000 Africans die each year as a result of household air pollution, half of them children under the age of five. For this reason, he explains, the report recommends that aid donors and financial institutions do more to unlock private investment through risk guarantees and mitigation finance.He adds that 621 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa, lack access to electricity. Another concern is that the poorest people in Africa are paying among the world’s highest prices for energy per kilowatt-hour kWn.For example, people in the US pay $0.12 for energy per kilowatt-hour, while poor households in Africa pay $10 per kilowatt-hour.The APR estimates that 138 million households use charcoal, kerosene and firewood and similar fuel for energy. The report’s findings show how the poorest of Africa are suffering without electricity. (Image: Infographic from African Progress Report)The poorest affectedTurning to climate change, the report reveals that the most severe and immediate effects will be felt by the rural poor. “If global average temperatures are allowed to increase by 4˚C, large areas used for cropping sorghum, millet and maize would become unviable,” it says.“In some areas drought could become more prolonged and severe. In other cases, productivity levels will be affected by unpredictable rainfall, increased temperature and flooding.“Rising sea levels could threaten coastal cities such as Accra, Dar es Salaam and Lagos. Hydropower systems could be compromised by reduced rainfall and increased evaporation.”EndorsementsThe APR strongly recommends that governments and private institutions work together to deliver affordable energy to the poor in Africa. Its recommendations include:Stopping the secrecy – foreign investors and African companies should provide full disclosure of their beneficial ownership structures and report transparently on energy-related contracts, including electricity off-take arrangements.Linking African cities to the growing range of global city networks to unlock new opportunities for knowledge exchange, capacity building and financing.Watch Kofi Annan call on the international community to make commitments needed to limit global warming:
