WE oppose "the view" condo


More than 100 of our neighbors attended the Public Hearing of the LA County Regional Planning Commission on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, and gave compelling fact-based testimony to represent the community's interests. Although the Regional Planning Commission voted 3–1 to approve the developer's application, UHA II and 17 other local residents filed an appeal with the Board of Supervisors which vacated the Commission's errant decision and an appeal hearing is set for October 24th.

UHA II representatives originally met with LA County Regional Planning staff and representatives of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to discuss our concerns about "The View" on May 22, 2017.  As a result of our efforts, the May 31st public hearing on the project was continued to August 2nd. We also met with the developer to discuss potential changes to the project, but the developer refused to consider any of our suggested modifications to the project.

We invite you to view the full video of the August 2nd Public Hearing of the LA County Regional Planning Commission. Please note that community members offered more than 70 public comments, and the hearing lasted more than 3 hours!

UHA II has appealed the Regional Planning Commission's decision to approve "The View" condo project, and a public hearing with the L.A. County Board of Supervisors is set for October 24th. We are circulating petitions for residents to sign; please click on the link below to sign the online version and email ttabor@uhawhvp.org if you'd like to volunteer to take petitions door to door. We need to make sure that Supervisor Ridley-Thomas hears from as many residents as possible to help him understand the extent of the harmful impacts this project would have on our community. Please take a few minutes to share your opinion on this project with Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and his staff:
