The Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council has been having such a great time hosting the Concerts in the Park this year that they have decided to conduct their July Board Meeting in the Lou Bredlow Pavilion in Warner Park in Woodland Hills.
The Code Studies Unit of the Planning Department is undertaking a comprehensive review of the Planning and Zoning Code to select certain provisions that are in need of improvement. The complexity of this important document can make doing quality development more difficult. It also raises the cost of doing business in Los Angeles by requiring lengthy study of our unique and cumbersome Zoning Code.
PLUM Committee Chair August Steurer has already participated in a Department of City Planning dialogue of the Reform Concepts, which included topics such as the process for big projects vs. the process for small projects as well as the citywide commercial design guidelines.
Wednesday’s presentation will be given by Michael O’Brien and Tom Rothmann and will address topics ranging from repetitive or contradictory code in need of updating to Quimby funds and how they are collected and applied. (The City’s “Quimby” law requires developers to provide land or pay a fee in order to build new residential projects that involve a subdivision.)
If you want to dig into the nuts and bolts of LA’s Zoning Code or if you simply want to advocate for more parks or if you think that all residential projects should contribute land and/or fees, come and join the Board of Directors on Wednesday, July 9 @6:30 pm.
