Approval of these 2 projects will create a strong nonconforming development precedent that will dilute the authority of current regulation and make future nonconforming projects in Pacific Palisades more likely to be approved.
Geologically complex and unstable sites
Hydrology and storm drainage issues
Stability of Sunset at risk
Massive increase in traffic on a dangerous part of Sunset
Projects will increase overload of existing DWP substation
Extensive construction and excavation that will last for years
These projects need much stricter scrutiny. They are far too dense for the community.
Would it be possible for a citizens group to purchase the property for a conservation project. The citizens could fund it and the government could use its mighty awesome power to please its tax base and eminent domain the bluffs for the good of the people. The property is presently being used as a dumping area for building materials with unknown substances and perhaps they are harmful.
Why would the government support a project that is contrary to law and disregard the will of the entire community?
