Water agency to remove “No Trespassing” signs from Eagle Rock trail

EAGLE ROCK —  The Metropolitan Water Agency said today it will remove controversial “No Trespassing” signs along a section of the Eagle Rock Canyon trail following a meeting with a community group and council office.

“The signs are coming down,” said spokesman Bob Muir. The signs should be removed by the end of today or early tomorrow followed by the removal of the metal sign posts.

The No Trespassing signs – which threaten $1,000 fines or six months in jail – were placed on portions of the trail that swerve into MWD property. District representatives told CBS LA  the signs were in response to reports of nearby homeless encampments and concern about potential wildfires that could endanger a water facility in a box canyon.

Collaborative Eagle Rock Beautiful, which owns the trail land, complained that the water agency never contacted them about the problems before the signs went up.

Muir said a temporary entry permit will be issued to Collaborative Eagle Rock Beautiful to cover portions of the trail on agency property, he said.

  1. Maybe, just maybe…….Please……. The City of Los Angeles will remove the Homeless Encampments up in that little park area off of Scholl Canyon Road / Figueroa. That little park use to be very nice until the Homeless took it over with all there crappy RV’s, cars and tent cities buried in the brush. Its not even safe anymore up they. #1. The fires we had last summer up in that area were caused by the Homeless using warming/cooking fires in there illegal encampments along the 134 freeway as told by Los Angeles Fire Dept. . #2. The gun fire up there when (someone) was shooting at the LAPD a few months ago. #3. All the illegal drugs and needles lying on the ground in that park and at Eagle Rock Park. Thus the CRACK/METH Heads that live in these Homeless encampments up there. Just get Rid of them!!!!!

  2. I used to enjoy a hike with my dogs on the trail, now it has been taken over by drug addicts. I don’t want my dogs stepping on some junky’s dirty needles. The city of LA needs to get their sh#t together.

  3. The city and LAPD need to grow a backbone and forcefully remove these crack heads and “homeless” that have taken over hillsides and parks all over the city. Enough is enough. Call your local police station and councilman constantly until they get the damn message. They love to act like these people living in tents across the city are just down on their luck people. No, they are either mentally ill, criminals and/or drug addicts.
