Surprisingly, the Planning Commission has approved the Swerdlow 7-Eleven project at 4436 Sepulveda Boulevard. In spite of efforts by local residents over a period of years to raise the consciousness of government and committee members who decide these things, it now feels very possible that we will have our sixth 7-Eleven within city boundaries and a third one located on Sepulveda for those who enjoy stopping their cars at short intervals to refill their soda cups.
Imagine that. Three…Continue
