Oppose Misuse of Specific Plan Process

Passage deadline: January 2022

Passed by

  • Bel Air-Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council
  • Mar Vista Community Council
  • Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa
  • South Robertson Neighborhoods Council
  • West LA-Sawtelle Neighborhood Council (modified version)
  • Westside Neighborhood Council
  • Westwood Neighborhood Council

Motion

The __________ Neighborhood/Community Council opposes the City’s use of Specific Plans that would result in upzoning open space and/or low-density residential neighborhoods. The use of specific plans in this manner creates significant negative impacts for all residential communities, the environment and natural resources. We urge our City Councilmembers to reject land use applications for individual development projects that represent a misuse of the Specific plan process. We ask that the City Council inform Planning not to process these types of requests.
