Meeting Slated on Amendments to Westwood Community Plan

The public unveiling of the Planning Department's recommendations for amendments to the Westwood Community Plan will take place Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at an informational meeting at Warner Avenue School auditorium, 615 Holmby Ave.

"Because the Westwood Community Plan was first designed in 1972 and is one of the oldest community plans in the city, there is an urgent need for a comprehensive review of the plan," Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky said.

Community plans are the official guides to future development of a community. They contain objectives, policies and programs which outline the arrangement and extent of land use and the locations and characteristics of public service facilities.

Areas of proposed changes include: Westwood Village, Santa Monica Boulevard between Sepulveda Boulevard and Club View Drive, Westwood Boulevard between Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, the Regional Commercial Center along Wilshire Boulevard, the Devon/Ashton area, the apartment areas south of Wilshire Boulevard Boulevard and west of Westwood, and the apartment areas south of Wilshire Boulevard and west of the Mormon Temple.

Graphic illustrations of the proposed amendments, as well as written materials, will be available for review at the meeting, and members of the City's Planning Department will be available to answer questions.

Written and oral comments can be submitted at the meeting or sent to Vivian Rescalvo or Daniel Scott at the city Planning Department, Room 508, City Hall, 200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles 90012.
