Ballona Wetlands Land Trust Update

The Los Angeles City Council will be voting whether or not to re-approve the proposed Playa Vista development expansion on the 110 acre Ballona Southeast this Friday March 26, 2010 at 10am.

Ballona Wetlands Trust

A recommended read from the Non-Profit Ballona Wetlands Land Trust:

When running for election, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl signed a pledge to vote NO on the Playa Vista development expansion until Phase one is fully built out and occupied so traffic and other impacts can be fully analyzed before considering approval of Playa Vista Phase Two. Bill Rosendahl must be held accountable. If allowed to go forward as planned, the proposed Playa Vista development expansion creates: 2800 new residential units, a huge shopping center/retail space and 175,000 sq. ft. of office space.

If approved as proposed, it is a gift of entitlements that are 40 times what the City’s own rules allow, to the Wall Street fatcats that own the land.

If built as proposed the Playa Vista development expansion would result in 26,000 additional car trips per day, for a total of 78,000 for the entire development.
