DO YOU WANT SANTA MONICA TO LOOK LIKE WEST LA?
Greater height & density
planned for Wilshire than any other Blvd in SM
The Planning Commission and City Council are in the process of re-writing the zoning code for Santa Monica. They are pushing for more height and density along Wilshire Blvd than any other boulevard in the city. How will this impact our neighborhoods? Traffic, congestion, and parking issues immediately come to mind.
In addition, houses all along Wilshire will live in the shadow of these tall buildings. If you go to google satellite and view the corner of Wilshire and Granville here, you can see how a large building on Wilshire casts a shadow over the houses all the way to Goshen Ave. It is hard to put a price on sunlight but even if you could, these residents would not be compensated for their loss.
City Hall is making decisions NOW that will impact your neighborhood for the next 20 years. If you want a voice in the decision please speak out NOW. Write the Planning Commissioners, City Council and Staff. Voice your concerns. Click here for addresses and sample emails.
