Semi Tropic Development Approval Delayed

Photo: Futterer, Holyland Exhibition, 1960. Note the large quantity of different types of fill dirt dumped at the portion of the property closest to Rosebud in the proposed development site at 2400 Allesandro. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Wednesday, February 25, 2009, on the advice of the City Attorney, City Council President Eric Garcetti sent the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract development proposal back to the City Council Planning & Land Use committee (PLUM) for further assessment of biological resources, aesthetics and geology/soils.

It will be back to the full City Council for a vote on April 3, 2009.

By the way, there's an City election next Tuesday. Garcetti and PLUM chair, Ed Reyes are running for re-election. Perhaps the fact that the developer had listed the property for sale as a 16-lot subdivision prior to gaining approval for the subdivision had more to do with the deferral than anything evidence submitted to date.

Stay up to date with the latest submissions to case number CF 09-0082 on City Clerk Connect.
