Event Description

Attend the 7PM City Hall meeting about creating a new vision for Sepulveda Boulevard.

Build on the successes of Parcel B and create a Specific Use Plan for our neighborhood.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND THE MEETING?

We don't have a Specific Use Plan on file in the City Municipal Code to govern the specific usage of the commercial properties from Farragut Drive up to Venice Boulevard. The City will hold site plan hearings and possibly vote to approve our sixth 7-Eleven store at the corner of Braddock Drive and Sepulveda Boulevard.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Residents can discuss the need for a Specific Use Plan for the commercial district and urge the Planning Commission to disapprove the 7-Eleven project. We need to conduct further studies into the matter and adopt new ordinances into the City Municipal Code.

I will see you there! February 8 at 7:00 PM in City Hall.

Even better, meet an hour before in the courtyard. :-)

March 14, 2012 -- Come to discuss why you think that the Sepulveda Commercial Corridor needs an upgrade to match the other commercial districts in Culver City.

City Hall. 7PM Be there!

Just last week, my in-laws came through and had a lovely time first at Pho Show and then over to Coolhaus. When they returned to see us, they commented on how fun and unique their experience in Culver City was, and how it is so nice and refreshing to have individually owned business concepts here in Culver City.

We can continue that tradition by working together to create a Specific Use Plan in the Sepulveda Commercial District. Right now it is zoned "Commercial General" and as a result, anyone can start any business they wish with their property. With a Specific Use Plan, we can limit the types of business that the property owners can begin. This is not unusual. We have these plans in place in Downtown Culver City and West Washington.

Don't get bogged down by other issues. The City has already received a threatening legal letter from Andrew Swerdlow's attorney. It is very clear that there is only one issue: zoning.

Unless we modify the municipal code to include a Specific Use Plan for the properties in that Commercial General Zone, then we will have this 7-Eleven as the corner store. And then beyond that, who knows how else the character and flavor of that neighborhood will change.

We need to stay hip, fresh, green, interesting, unique and fun. Culver City is different for a reason. Let's keep moving forward.

Yours,

Bryan
