Code Simplification Workshops


Posted by ROBGWebsite | Posted in Zoning & Development | Posted on 05-11-2010

Due to significant concerns from many community organizations (including RoBG), the City of LA has suspended approval of the Code Simplification Ordinance to have more public workshops

The ordinance is to help simplify the various findings for code modifications. although a good idea in principal, RoBG has concerns about how it can make it easier for developers to get modifications and its conflict with the Baseline Hillside Ordinance.

If you are interested, have concerns or want to express your views, you must attend any one of the three workshops.  You don’t need to stay for all of it but do let the City know what you are thinking.

We do our best to keep you informed, up to you to get involved!

Thanks to All

Thanks to all who were able to donate to the efforts of the Mountains and Recreation and Conservation Authority per our prior posting.  We received an update that they were able to receive enough donations to make their payment (in particular thanks to two major donors).

Only obstacles are ensuring the City Council gets the approval through two committees (ITGA on 9/27 and Budget & Finance on 10/4) then to City Council for approval.

We’ll keep you posted!

As some of you may or may not know, the Mountains Recreation and Conversation Authority (established by Joint Authority in 1985) has been working to acquire (from the City of Los Angeles), 77 lots around the Beverly Glen area to help preserve those open lots.  The MRCA has negotiated with the City to use some of those proceeds to help the MRCA acquire the large undeveloped land by Laurel Canyon and Mulholland to preserve as open space.

The owner of the Laurel Canyon land is looking to sell the land to a developer unless we can raise $40,000 fast to extend the MRCA deadline by TODAY!

Log onto where you can find more information, for both preserving our open land around our community and to prevent development in our neighboring community (which impacts the Glen), it is critical all Beverly Glen residents take time to pay attention to this situation.
