A public hearing for the second stage of Playa Vista has been set for 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, October 14th at St. Robert’s Hall on the campus of Loyola Marymount University, 1 LMU Drive in Westchester.
The hearing will be held on six proposed actions by the applicant, Playa Capital.
The Village, the mixed-use component for which the developer is requesting an amendment to the city’s specific plan, will include residential housing, commercial space and a riparian corridor, as well as an ecological reserve.
Playa Capital is also requesting amendments to the Westchester-Playa del Rey Community Plan to change the current land use designation and a change in zoning to the specific plan, according to city planning documents.
The public is invited to attend and submit verbal and written comments on the proposed projects. The comment period will remain open after the hearing.
The Village was approved in 2004 by the Los Angeles City Council, but portions of its environmental impact report (EIR) were nullified by the Court of Appeals due to certain deficiencies with the project’s analysis of wastewater impacts, archaeological resources and land use impacts. The EIR was recirculated earlier this year.
