Passage deadline: September 2018
Passed by

  • Brentwood Community Council
  • Westwood Neighborhood Council

Motion

The _______________Council opposes SB813, which would eliminate the FAR, floor area square footage, of Accessory Dwelling Units from a site’s total floor area. No compelling reason, and no planning justification, has been presented that demonstrates how the physical conditioned, livable space of an ADU is different from the physical conditioned, livable space of the primary residence on the property.

Opposition to SB828, requiring zoning capacity for 200% of state assigned RHNA goals

Passage deadline: July 2018
Not yet passed by a member Council

Motion

The _______________Council opposes SB828, which would allow the state to require cities approve zoning capacity for 200% of state assigned RHNA goals, and trigger a by-right process for approvals overriding all local plans IF cities fail to meet all assigned RHNA goals. WRAC notes this bill is based on arbitrary numbers, and by-right approvals with no affordable housing requirements would be a disincentive for developers to use city density bonus ordinances that produce affordable housing—and an unintended consequence of the legislation.

Passage deadline: July 2018
Passed by
  • Bel Air-Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council
  • Brentwood Community Council
  • Pacific Palisades Community Council

Motion

The _______________Council opposes SB946, in which the State of California would establish sidewalk vending regulations for local municipalities. The bill would require local regulations to permit vending in parks and public spaces and would not allow location restrictions unless “directly related to objective health, safety or welfare concerns”. The City of Los Angeles is currently analyzing sidewalk vending options. Local control and jurisdiction over sidewalk vending is strongly preferred, and should be preserved.

Oil drilling safety conditions at Rancho Park Golf Course

Passage deadline: September 2018
Passed by
  • Brentwood Community Council
  • Mar Vista Community Council

Motion

WHEREAS industrial oil drilling operations at Rancho Park Public Golf Course are ongoing and in close proximity to thousands of residents, and

WHEREAS there is an extensive history at this Drillsite of City Code violations, Conditions-of-Use violations, and repeated industrial accidents, and

WHEREAS considerable and widespread concern regarding potential jeopardy to human health and safety from extractive oil and gas operations in close proximity to dense residential areas is demonstrable from the widely reported physical symptoms and complaints about communications following the odorant spill of November 29, 2017, reminiscent of the 2015 natural gas leak further north at Aliso Canyon.

THEREFORE be it resolved to exhort that the Zoning Administrator (ZA) follow precedent and deny Drillsite approval of CEB industrial equipment within the residentially zoned Rancho Park Public Golf Course, and FURTHER mandate all the following safety conditions:

  1. 24/7 emissions monitoring using up-to-date laser-based equipment,
  2. Annual compliance inspections by the ZA’s office and Petroleum Administrator,
  3. Mandatory periodic Reviews of Conditions by the ZA on a 5 year cycle to allow for updating of ZA assigned conditions of use,
  4. A clear emergency and accident reporting plan by which the oil company must notify LAFD, LAPD, the Petroleum Administrator, and Council District 5.
