WHAT NCs AND PLANNING PROS KNOW – The Update of the Hollywood Community Plan is not only opposed by nearly every neighborhood council and resident group in Hollywood, but also by city planning professionals like myself.
Community groups, in fact, understand Los Angeles’s legally adopted city plans and the planning process better than LA’s elected officials and departmental managers.
Local residents know that claims from City Hall that the Hollywood Community Plan Update faithfully implements the General Plan are bogus.
They also know that any revival of Hollywood will turn on high quality public infrastructure and services, careful project reviews, reliable code enforcement, and annual monitoring.
Why? Because the Hollywood Community Plan Update is totally at odds with LA’s General Plan Framework Element (1996), the backbone of the city’s General Plan.
The Update is nothing more than the city planning version of the fantasy film, Field of Dreams, in which an Iowa farmer builds a baseball diamond that magically materialized high caliber baseball teams and games.
