Council member Mitch Englander wants to protect the tight industrial market in the San Fernando Valley.

Englander proposed a motion on Friday to create an industrial core within Chatsworth and Northridge, limiting other types of development within its boundaries. It would be called the Innov818 district, or Chatsworth-Northridge Industrial Core.

The areas have been known as center for aerospace and other technology industries capable of accommodating high-tech, clean-tech, green-tech and bio-tech businesses, Urbanize reported.

Englander said in his motion that he wants to ensure that the necessary land use policies are enforced to preserve the area as a light industrial hub, since redevelopment efforts could allow non-industrial uses in the core and remove high-paying jobs. 

The proposed industrial district is a 2.5-square-mile area bounded by Lassen Street, Mason Avenue, Plummer Street, Cobin Avenue, Nordhoff Street and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, according to Urbanize.

Englander’s motion was referred to the Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee, which will assess the proposed district. [Urbanize] – Subrina Hudson
