Ponte Vista, Neighborhood Council Meetings This Week

Ponte Vista Open House

The community will get a first look at new designs for the Ponte Vista housing development at an open house Thursday.

The open house takes place from 4-8 p.m. on March 12 at Peck Park, 560 N. Western Ave.

Public comment forms will be provided for feedback about the new designs, said to reflect the developer’s re-thinking of the “overall scale, makeup and density” of the Western Avenue residential project.

This will be the first public meeting following the December management shake-up that ousted Bob Bisno and shifted the project to DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners, a subsidiary of Credit Suisse First Boston bank.

The open house comes a month before the L.A. City Planning Commission is set to vote on the project at an April 9 hearing in dowtown L.A.
