BONIN ADDRESSES CITY COUNCIL IN SUPPORT OF HIS MOTION
On March 31, 2015, CD11 Councilmember Mike Bonin brought a motion to L.A. City Council to overturn the WLA Planning Commission’s decision to DENY a key aspect of the controversial, precedent-setting 758 Sunset Avenue proposed small lot subdivision project (SLS). The motion passed and the project will now be heard at the City Council Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) committee. Date TBA.
Here’s how Bonin justified his actions:
“In the matter of 758 Sunset, the West LA APC considered four issues — a Tentative Parcel Map, a Coastal Development Permit (CDP) a Mello Act Determination, and a Zoning Administrator’s Adjustment. The commission approved the Parcel Map, approved the CDP, and approved the Mello Act Determination, but denied the Adjustment. The denial of the Adjustment effectively halted the project.
However, since then, the Planning Department and the City Attorney have determined that the request for the Adjustment was not required, and the Planning should not have advised the applicant to seek it. Therefore, the APC’s action regarding the Adjustment needs to be reconsidered.”
