Free Workshop: Fighting Neighborhood Transit Plans

  • 6500 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Giant buildings are planned for your street unless you stop it!

Coalition to Preserve LA presents a FREE workshop Nov 10 to help you develop strategies to challenge top-down Specific Plans and Neighborhood Transit Plans.

RSVP a MUST: 2PreserveLA@gmail.com

The City Planning Commission is working behind closed doors with the YIMBY group “Abundant Housing” to impose luxury apartment towers in cherished neighborhoods.

“Public” hearings go virtually unadvertised. The city isn’t telling you what will be lost:

·      single family neighborhoods

·      historic zones & favorite business districts

·      open space and green belts

·      front yard and building setbacks

·      rent-stabilized older apartments

·      public roads (gifting of roads to developers)

You will learn tools to challenge top-down Specific Plans and Neighborhood Transit Plans that would affect neighborhoods near the Purple Line and its extension, the Orange Line and the Ventura-Cahuenga Specific Plan.

Special Appeal Hearing - Development at 1546-1550 S. Orange Grove Ave.

The Special Appeal Hearing is set regarding the new development at

1546-1550 S. Orange Grove Avenue.

IT’S INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE A STRONG SHOWING!!

This proposed Transit Oriented Community (T.O.C.) development is 55 feet high and does not comply with the Q Ordinance set in the neighborhood limiting height to 33 feet. It is the 1st T.O.C. development in Picfair Village and will help set precedent.

We will be chartering a bus for those that need transportation. Stay tuned for details. For updates and to let us know if you will want to take the bus, please email us at gmissad@gmail.com to be added to the list. Those who can contribute to help defray the cost of this appeal can do so at https://www.gofundme.com/save-picfair-from-overdevelopment

City Planning presents the Purple Line Transit Neighborhood Plan

  • Wilshire Community Police Station (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Senior City Planners will present this plan and then take comments and questions from stakeholders as is required by the State CEQA laws in order for this plan to move forward in advance of the scheduled Wilshire Community Plan update (2021).  

The Purple Line TNP is an upzoning plan that will bring thousands of new residents into the area surrounding our neighborhood:

(a) with unprecedented height and density and limited to no parking and

(b) without upgrading our current aging infrastructure (water, power, streets) or increasing city services (police, fire, schools).  

Below are links to articles pointing out some of the concerns.

Child Car Seat Safety Event

Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Deaths and injuries can often be prevented by the proper use of correctly installed car seats, boosters, and seat belts.

Is your child’s car seat installed properly?  Is your car seat the appropriate seat for your child’s age, weight and height?

Assemblymember Richard Bloom partnered with the California Highway Patrol to host a FREE Car Seat Safety Inspection Event at the City of Malibu’s Preparedness Expo.

Stop by the event to have your child safety seat inspected by certified technicians representing the California Highway Patrol. This free event is open to all ages and will include fire safety classes, earthquake preparedness classes, and activity booths all focused on keeping our communities safe.
