SILVER LAKE — A group of Silver Lake residents have appealed a decision that would permit a developer to build 10 new homes in the 1400 block of Waterloo Street.
The city’s East Los Angeles Area Planning Commission on Wednesday is scheduled to review the appeal filed against a proposal to carve up two existing lots into separate parcels for the construction of 10, single-family homes with 20 parking spaces. Planning Department staff have recommended that the commissioners deny the appeal.
Neighbors have said the Waterloo development, which would be built under the city’s small-lot division ordinance, is too large for the area and that the new homes would overlook the backyards of those who live on Coronado Terrace. Many have also raised concerns about noise and the lack of compatibility between the contemporary-style townhomes and nearby bungalows dating from the 1920s.
The area planning commission’s decision can be appealed to the full City Council. Click here for meeting details and location.
