Big Ponte Vista Vote Thursday

The L.A. City Planning Commission will weigh in on Ponte Vista this week, possibly casting a vote to reject the project as proposed.

Commissioners are set to vote on the staff recommendation to disapprove the 1,950-unit residential complex and effectively send the developer back to the drawing board.

Supporters and opponents are planning to testify at the downtown L.A. hearing on April 9. The grassroots opposition group R Neighborhoods Are 1 has posted a flyer instructing sympathizers to wear red to signal “stop the project” and giving a phone number for carpools. The official Ponte Vista blog summarizes recent developments to set the context for the hearing.

The hearing takes place at 8:30 a.m. at City Hall in the City Council chamber, 200 N. Spring St., Room 350, L.A. The agenda is posted on the planning department website.
