Elysian Valley community members needed to support Councilmember O’Farrell’s motion

Dear Neighbor:

Please see the below communication received from the EVRNC, which I trust is self-explanatory.  Please too see the link too the “Smart Growth” document posted earlier this week prepared by RAC to assist in our understanding of the proposed changes.

Best regards,



Dear Elysian Valley Neighbor:

As you know, your Neighborhood Council has been pushing hard for changes in our zoning that protect the qualities of our neighborhood, limit over dense development, retain jobs, and encourage affordable housing.

In February of 2014 (listed in Minutes under Environment & Land Use Committee Report – Item C), the NC unanimously passed a resolution for an important zoning proposal.  Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell has heard our unified voices by putting forth a motion to move the changes to the next stage (see link at end of email).  Tomorrow his motion will be decided on by the Los Angeles City Planning and Land Use Management Committee.  There will still be more work before the changes go into affect but this is a crucial first step.

This a  crucial time for neighborhood unity.  We need Elysian Valley community members to support Councilmember O’Farrell’s motion.  Attend the meeting, call or email to let your elected officials.  Tell them: “I support support changes in Elysian Valley Q Conditions.”  Below find contact information about how to let your voice be heard.


Steven Appleton

Chair, Elysian Valley Riverside Neighborhood Council
