Comment in Writing about Ponte Vista

Supporters and opponents of the proposed 1950-unit Ponte Vista housing development on Western Avenue are gearing up for a public hearing at the end of this month.

The Los Angeles City Planning Department is holding the hearing to take public testimony about the controversial project. No decisions will be made at the hearing, but the testimony will inform the department’s subsequent recommendations about the project.

The hearing takes place on June 26 at 5 p.m. at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

The public can also mail or e-mail written comments to the city. The address for submissions is listed in the official hearing notice.

The Ponte Vista website and the community organization R Neighborhoods Are 1 present the pro and con viewpoints, respectively.

The project is in the area of the Northwest neighborhood council, which commissioned its own studies of traffic and related issues. These reports can be found on the council’s Ponte Vista page.
