Hollywood Community Plan update would prevent dense development in residential areas

Los Angeles city planners unveiled a revised version of the Hollywood Community Plan on Tuesday, more than three years after the original failed to take hold.

The proposal calls for development along the Metro Red Line subway, much like the 2012 plan. But one big difference is the new draft’s emphasis on protecting the single-family homes that now occupy much of the submarket.
The 2012 plan was tossed out after a judge ruled that it cited false population growth projections, the Los Angeles Business Journal reported.

The plan aims to encourage high-density development along transit corridors. But it discourages dense development in residential areas, and also includes tools that could allow more buildings to be designated for historic preservation, preventing redevelopment. These include new overlay zones and height limits for new buildings near historic preservation zones.

The new plan already has the support of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the BID Hollywood Property Owners Alliance.

Robert Silverstein, attorney for the organization that sued over the 2012 plan, told the Business Journal Tuesday that he didn’t have a chance to review the revised plan yet.

“Has the city engaged in responsible planning and followed the law this time?” he asked in an email statement. “Those are questions we will be asking.”

The current plan in place has not been updated since 1988. [LABJ]Cathaleen Chen
