THANK YOU to everyone who zoomed in to our April Meeting and thanks again for all your input!!!
1) HOUSING, WILMONT & YOU - WILL OUR NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE TO ADD 9,000 NEW HOUSING UNITS BY 2029?
The state says we do and about two-thirds of them have to be "affordable." Those roughly 6,000 units will cost $4 Billion and the state is not giving us ANY money to pay for them. So, can we? Should we? Will we? We have two speakers:
-- Mario Fonda-Bonardi: SM Planning Commissioner and member of Santa Monica Architects for a Responsible Tomorrow...
-- Leonora Camner: Exec. Dir. of Abundant Housing LA, SM Housing Commissioner & Steering Comm. Member of SM Forward...
2) HOTELS, BARS & WILMONT - The Oceana, a Hilton hotel at the corner of Ocean & Idaho, is seeking permits to allow non-hotel guests to drink, dine and gather at their Hotel restaurant. Our speakers include:
