- On the Agenda -
Jill Stewart - Coalition to Preserve L.A.
Neighborhood Integrity Initiative
A former Los Angeles Times reporter, she now serves as Campaign Director for Coalition to Preserve L.A.
That group has drafted a ballot measure to limit the city's ability to change planning and zoning rules for major real estate projects.The drafted ballot measure for the March Election 2017, is called he Neighborhood Integrity Initiative. It is LA's Response to Unplanned Density and Insider Deals.
Come hear the proposal and bring your questions.
Their promotional materials state the following:
"L.A.’s planning system is broken. The process is controlled by deep-pocketed developers and powerful politicians to serve their own self-interests. This rigged system pushes forward luxury mega-projects that cause traffic gridlock, the destruction of neighborhood character, and the displacement of longtime residents, including senior citizens on fixed budgets.
The Coalition to Preserve L.A. and its supporters are saying no more. We believe that the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative is our best hope to ensure that local residents have greater voice in how their communities grow and develop by enacting the following reforms.
This citizen initiative will:
We are not opposed to growth and change; we understand that these are inevitable. But what’s not inevitable is reckless and irresponsible development by a handful of politically connected developers and their army of lobbyists, attorneys and PR consultants.
We believe in development that is responsible and respects the priorities and values of local residents and we urge you to support the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative when it appears on the ballot in March 2017."

POSITIONS TAKEN BY THE WHHO BOARD
1. We have worked hard with the community to make the Westfield "Village" the best it could be for the Valley and will continue to do so in the future as well.
2. We have taken the position against the Valley Fair having a permanent home at Pierce College. We have always taken the position that this land is for Education and is to be used only for projects that are part of the education curriculum and run by Pierce, not a controlling outside entity. The 51 st Agricultural District has its own Board and contracts with all the vendors and decides what will be done. Save Pierce for the quality education it is now providing and let the administration concentrate on what the community demands it do in education.
3. Waiting for the final
proposal regarding the development on the north side of Mulholland across from Louisville High. The
proposed project originally included 39 condos in a currently R1 zoned area.
neighbors and the Design Review Board were against this. We have not taken a
final position on a proposed development on the north side of Mulholland, across
from Louisville High at
You can go to Save Oak Savanna web site, for anyone wishing to learn more or get involved and voice your opinion of the development. The web site is http://www.saveoaksavanna.org
4. Oppose the unconditional paving of dirt Mulholland.
5. Since 2004 We have opposed any further conversion of light manufacturing, small business office space to very dense apartment complexes without replacement in kind of the facilities demolished in Warner Center.
