SMART DEVELOPMENT

CRIME PREVENTION

Whether through improved Neighborhood Watch, enhanced surveillance or other means, we are committed to doing everything possible to improve security and prevent crime in our community.  Sgt. Signater was right when he told us at the meeting to report anything suspicious — one of our neighbors thwarted a burglary on August 16th by being diligent and calling the Sheriff's Marina Station.  Please keep this number handy and use it to help stop crime: (310) 482-6000. Below are some additional resources for security and neighborhood watch:

IMPROVING TRAFFIC SAFETY

We want to work with law enforcement, Public Works and all of our neighbors to implement effective measures to force speeding vehicles to slow down and save lives!  We all need to remember to slow down as we go thru our daily routines...the life you save may be your own.  Please follow the link below to sign our online petition, and you can also call (323) 778-5433 to find out where to sign the paper version. Check out some of the information on LA County traffic safety below!

UHA II members from the Windsor Hills, View Park, and View Heights neighborhoods in unincorporated Los Angeles County voted overwhelmingly to oppose "The View" condo project that has been proposed for the site at 5101 Overhill Drive. Despite more than 100 attendees in opposition and more than 70 comments offered at the August 2nd Public Hearing, the LA County Regional Planning Commission voted 3–1 to approve "The View," an out-of-scale 65-foot condo project. On behalf of our community's residents, UHA II will appeal the commission's approval of "The View" condo project. Please contact Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to voice your concerns about "The View" condo project.


As many attendees stated at the August 2nd Public Hearing of the LA County Regional Planning Commission, residents of the Windsor Hills, View Park, and View Heights neighborhoods are not "anti-development." However, our residents are in favor of smart development that is responsive to the surrounding neighborhoods and to the community's needs as expressed by current residents who vote, pay their property taxes, and rightfully expect Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, their elected representative on the LA County Board of Supervisors, to fully represent their interests.


Our residents' ideas for smart development at or near the proposed site of "The View" condo project on 5101 Overhill Drive include: senior housing (reasonable height), a coffee shop, a grocery store, a post office, a dog park (to complement nearby open-space amenities like the Stocker Corridor Trail) — and the addition of sidewalks along Overhill Drive, so residents can safely use their increasingly walkable neighborhood to access whatever smart development emerges at that location.
