Home Depot tries again in Tujunga

The Home Depot project on Foothill Boulevard that ran into a mountain of community opposition is back on the agenda. The store applied to City Hall for a permit to remodel the shuttered former K-Mart. The request for a building permit is part of negotiations over a lawsuit that Home Depot filed after the City Council halted the project last year. "We have put a temporary hold on the lawsuit so we can work collaboratively with the city and the community on new solutions -- this new permit application is an important step in the right direction," the company says in a release. Here's the update page of the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council.
