Concerned about zoning issues, housing availability and local control of city planning decisions? Join your fellow neighbors to address these issues and more.
WSSM is excited to be holding it’s first in-person Annual Meeting since the onset of the pandemic, on Tuesday evening, November 14th at Saint Timothy’s Church at the corner of Pico and Beverly Glen. Free parking is available in the St. Timothy lot on Pico Blvd, and adjacent residential streets.
There is no charge to attend. Dinner — free to paid up members and $10 for for non-paid members — will be available 6:30-7:15pm.
Learn What You Can Do About Current Neighborhood Issues and Concerns
The business meeting, beginning at 7:15pm, will feature a dynamic presentation by the founders of United Neighbors, Maria and Jeff Kalban. United Neighbors is a local and statewide coalition of neighborhood residential groups engaged in the common goal of protecting single and multi-family neighborhoods while supporting affordable and equitable housing for all. Maria is VP of the Sherman Oaks HOA and Jeff is an architect who chairs the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee.
Maria and Jeff’s presentation will directly address our concerns with the City’s current efforts to up-zone residential neighborhoods through the Housing Element and WLA Community Planning process now underway. Learn how we can work together to stop the up-zoning efforts that now target our neighborhood, our single- family homes and older multi-family housing.
In addition to United Neighbors, we’ll have participation from representatives of the West LA Community Police Station, Councilmember Yaroslavsky’s CD5 office, and Congressmember Ted Lieu’s office. An organized and respectful question and answer format will be utilized to address neighborhood members’ concerns.
