WE oppose "the view" condo


UHA II representatives originally met with LA County Regional Planning staff and representatives of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to discuss our concerns about the proposed development of an out-of-scale 88-unit condo called "The View" at 5101 Overhill Drive on May 22, 2017. As a result of our efforts, the initial May 31st public hearing on the project was continued to August 2nd. (UHA II 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.)

More than 100 neighbors attended the public hearing of the LA County Regional Planning Commission on August 2, 2017, and gave compelling fact-based testimony to represent our community's interests. We invite you to view the full video of the August 2nd Public Hearing of the LA County Regional Planning Commission. Community members offered more than 70 public comments, and the hearing lasted more than 3 hours! Despite the public outcry from residents who live, vote, and pay property taxes in the immediate neighborhood of the proposed condo project, the Regional Planning Commission voted 3–1 to approve the developer's application. In response, UHA II and 17 local homeowners filed an appeal with the LA County Board of Supervisors, and another public hearing was set for October 24th.

On October 24, 2017, the LA County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on UHA II's filed appeal opposing the Regional Planning Commission's August 2nd approval of "The View." At the October 24th public hearing of the appeal, more than 100 neighbors attended in-person (again) to show their opposition to the proposed condo project, and about 40 people offered highly credible testimony against the development (click here to view the Oct. 24th hearing and skip to the 2:35:30 mark). The issue was formally continued to a final public hearing that will take place on Tuesday, November 21, 2017.
