With a new year comes a new round of agenda items. On this week’s agenda Council District 1’s Gil Cedillo is seeking to bypass the rejection of a proposed Highland Park car wash by a local planning commission. Atwater Village has a number of proposed projects on their roster, while Lincoln Heights wants to discuss outreach for 2015.
- A number of projects are planned for Atwater Village in 2015, and the Environment and Land Use Committee would like to bring those projects to the public’s attention. They are: a small lot development on Chevy Chase and Verdant; a proposed project on 3116-3124 West Larga Avenue involving the demolition of 2 existing dwelling units for three single-family residences with six parking spaces; a proposed 60-unit project at 3990 & 4000 Chevy Chase on 3.5-4 acres of land; a proposed 6 unit-project on three lots at 2914 Glenhurst Ave. Wednesday, January 7.
- Councilmember Gil Cedillo, Council District 1, is flexing his political muscle on a project involving a proposed Figueroa Street car wash in Highland Park. The East L.A. Planning Commission back in November voted against a proposal to install a one-story, 496-square-foot automated car wash at the existing Shell gas station at 5137 N. Figueroa. But Cedillo has introduced a motion that, if approved by the City Council, would give the car wash project a second chance by allowing it to be presented to the Planning and Land Use Committee. Wednesday, January 7.
- Outreach committee meets in Lincoln Heights to discuss strategic planning for 2015, including future community cleanups, Easter Egg Hunt locations and other outreach issues. Monday, January 5.
- Community Liaison and Outreach Committees of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council wants to talk dog poop bag dispensers, maps to identify public staircases and co-funding an outdoor fitness zone at Bellevue Recreation and Park Center to the tune of $2,500. Monday, January 5.
