Hundreds of community members attended Thursday’s open house on the Ponte Vista housing development. Large display boards traced the history of the development and outlined the “emerging directions” the developer is proposing to take. Boards were set aside for public comment, where the community opined on oversized post-it notes.
The number of units being proposed is now 1,375-1,475 for the 61-acre Western Avenue property, a figure opponents still view as too dense.
Ponte Vista is holding another open house on March 28 at the Boys and Girls Club, preceding the L.A. City Planning Commission hearing on April 9.
The Los Angeles Times and Daily Breeze ran stories before and after the meeting, respectively.
