Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: 6 More Proposed Homes Up For Environmental Review On Rosebud Ave

Photo: Diane Edwardson, February 9, 2012.  The 6 vacant lots in question are to the left (downslope) of the police activity on Rosebud Ave in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Six vacant, adjacent, hillside lots (together totalling only 9,000 square feet) are under public environmental review for Zoning Administrator's Adjustment for reductions in front and sideyard setbacks for 6 new single family homes.    
They are legal lots, as they were cut in 1905.  The lots are at the hairpin turn at Peru and Rosebud, on the downslope side.  It's not just fire engines that have trouble making that turn.  Trash and delivery trucks, and even cars have trouble navigating that turn.
We have not yet reviewed the plans available for public review in
City Planning: (213) 978-1332. 
Case # ENV-2010-399-MND for 1943 Rosebud Ave. 
We first learned of the availability in the City Environmental Notices, buried in the Classifieds on page 6 of the LA Times Business Section, yesterday, August 30, 2012. 
The notice failed to mention the significantly sized, protected native trees on the lots.
