City Planning Forum - Subway Extension on San Vicente?

This one is really important, folks. What’s Metro is calling the Crenshaw Northern Extension is designed to eventually connect multiple existing train lines. Four of the five proposed options offered by Metro would take the Crenshaw Line directly through our neighborhoods.

Such a route will result in more convenient mass transit as well as a new Transit Plan allowing increased density within large portions of the PICO NC and the displacement of current residents in favor of more large luxury apartment buildings.

Metro is inviting the public to comment on these options. It is critically important that you attend a meeting and make your preferences known.

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.
