Westside planning bulletins

Proposed by Broide/WNC on October 19, 2016
Motion failed to be adopted by a majority of Councils before the June 2017 deadline
Passed by
  • Brentwood Community Council
  • Palms Neighborhood Council
  • South Robertson Neighborhoods Council
  • Venice Neighborhood Council
  • Westside Neighborhood Council


The _________NC/CC requests that Council Districts 5 and 11 prepare regular email planning bulletins that compile current land use issues, including citywide policy issues, current hearing dates, and details about Westside developments being considered by the City.


Council District 4 prepares detailed weekly planning bulletins (sign up at https://goo.gl/forms/jxCCfKreljG7sO8v1) for its constituents. Those emails are incredibly helpful in sorting out deadlines and important planning-related info that is relevant to community folks.

In an ideal world, the Planning Dept. downtown would provide an easy way for us to track major citywide initiatives and related hearings. Despite having asked Planning for this info on their website, it has not yet materialized. Having a reference document that is updated weekly would make our “jobs” less of a struggle and allow us to focus on the important details of projects and policies—rather than the pathways.

Therefore, we would like to request that our Planning staffs in CDs 5 and 11 create similar documents for distribution among the neighborhood and community councils, HOA’s and other groups who may have interest.
