CITY COUNCIL REJECTS MASSIVE LAS LOMAS PROJECT



Our motion to have the City make a policy decision to stop the Las Lomas development, stop the annexation of the land into City of Los Angeles and reject the Supplemental Fee Agreement to allow the developer to expedite the project, was approved by the City Council Wednesday, March 19.



The Las Lomas project was too big, too dense, and couldn’t be planned in a worse place. It would have a devastating effect on traffic, the environment and would unacceptably strain our water, infrastructure and public safety resources. The huge coalition of opponents to Las Lomas who came together to say no to this project have our gratitude and praise for stepping up to the plate to defend our community.



Residents, community groups, elected officials, Neighborhood Councils and environmental groups took official positions of opposition to Las Lomas, wrote letters of opposition, and made public comments against the development at Neighborhood Council meetings, City Council meetings and Planning & Land Use Management Committee meetings.



Today was a big victory for the San Fernando Valley in the fight to protect our quality of life and ensure that we focus on the needs of our communities.
Council District 12
