DRRA Position on Palms Mar Vista Del Rey Community Plan Updates


Community Plan Map

The following priorities must inform your work as you implement the Housing

Element 2021-2029 and update the Palms Mar Vista Del Rey (PMVDR)

Community Plan:


1 • PROVIDE MORE DATA AND OUTREACH.

- POPULATION, GROWTH AND UNIT DATA WITH TARGETS FOR EACH COMMUNITY IN LOS

ANGELES.

- MUST PRESENT UP-ZONING PLANS TO NEIGHBORHOODS AND GET FEEDBACK.

- MUST BE DATA DRIVEN PLANNING WITH PUBLIC SUPPORT.


2 • HIGHER DENSITY HOUSING ON CORRIDORS

- BUT MUST BE MIXED USE WITH GROUND FLOOR COMMERCIAL OR PUBLIC USES.


3 • DO NOT OVERSATURATE OUR COMMUNITY WITH HOUSING

- WE NEED MORE NON-RESIDENTIAL USES TO PROVIDE A BALANCE OF LIFE AND CREATE

SUSTAINABLE & WALKABLE NEIGHBORHOODS.


4 • PROTECT OUR INDUSTRIAL / MANUFACTURING ZONES

- THESE ZONES ARE UNIQUE TO DEL REY.

- HOUSING HERE IS NOT NECESSARY TO REACH RHNA GOAL.


5 • INCREASE THE AFFORDABLE UNIT MIX REQUIREMENTS

- 5% or 10% MIN. AFFORDABLE UNITS FOR BONUS IS NOT SOLVING OUR AFFORDABILITY CRISIS.

- RHNA REQUIRES 40% OF TOTAL REQUIRED TO BE VLI/LI UNITS.


6 • CLIMATE ACTION PLANNING

- MUST PROVIDE AND PRESERVE OUR OPEN & GREEN SPACES.


The Housing Element and the PMVDR Community Plan Update are being

prepared concurrently, and each affects the other. Our board of directors

approved this resolution on August 7, 2023, so that the same guiding principles

will be applied in both.
