Do you feel isolated and tired of the lack of community with Covid? Here is a change. Consider participating in a Mentoring Program for Senior Adults and Teens/Young Adults called SAGES AND SEEKERS. 2022 Participating High Schools are John Marshall in Los Feliz, Fairfax High, and Larchmont High School.
Our award-winning 8-Week Signature Program, designed for high schools and universities, fits perfectly into a school semester. This program is utilized in schools across the country as part of their academic curriculum, as well as a community service opportunity.
This is a 75-minute program, with group interaction as well as one-on-one time. Each week starts with group discussion, engaging both generations in dialogue that leads to authentic conversation. The Seekers choose their Sage partner through a “speed dating” rotation process the second week. During the remaining weeks, each Sage & Seeker pair engages in meaningful conversations about their lives. The impact of this exchange culminates in a tribute written by the Seeker, then read to the Sage.
In-person programs are currently being offered in the Los Angeles area. Please contact Rachel Shader, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending a program in-person. If you are interested in hosting an in-person program in your city outside of the LA area, licensing our manual will guide you through setting up a Sages & Seekers program step-by-step.

Next Community Meeting:
os Angeles City Planning is pleased to announce that a report regarding the Department’s ordinance implementation plan and a processes comparison chart have been prepared and submitted to the City Council in advance of the final Processes and Procedures Ordinance forthcoming from the City Attorney. Both items are available through the Council File Management System in Council File 12-0460-S4.
The proposed ordinance is the initial part of a larger effort to comprehensively revise the City‘s Zoning Code to make it more responsive and accessible to the public. The ordinance streamlines and reorganizes the rules that govern the steps involved in reviewing projects and adopting land use policy, while introducing a more user-friendly format.
The City Council previously considered the ordinance at their meeting on June 23, 2021, during which they instructed City Planning to report back with a public outreach and implementation plan and a line-by-line chart of the proposed changes. In response, City Planning has prepared a report and a processes comparison chart that displays the correspondence between existing processes and the proposed processes, as well as any changes in decision makers, public hearing notification requirements, and appellate procedures.
Some of the highlights of the proposed Processes & Procedures Ordinance are:
City Planning will continue to notify interested parties as the remaining legislative process milestones are reached, including final ordinance transmittal by the City Attorney. To receive future updates on this proposed ordinance, please sign up to join the interested parties list: planning.lacity.org/about/email-sign-up

Historically, the Century Glen HOA (formerly known as Tract 7260) made a deal in 1986 with the City of Los Angeles and the historical Days Inn Hotel (now the Courtyard Marriott Hotel) to set the rooftop height at ground to the hillside homes above. Zoning for this commercial property is C2-VL1-0. "VL1" means "Height District 1, Very Low", which limits the roof height of the adjacent commercial buildings to 45'. The HOA is currently in negotiations with the City to maintain this zoning and to interface with the Hotel regarding a new signage remodel and new cellular tower co-locations. We are currently investigating an entitlement granted in 2016 for a height exception granted for 59'4"under LAMC 12.24F.
2020-2021 was a busy year for the Bellwood properties. The deal with South Bay Partners for 7-story 191 Unit Eldercare Facility was terminated in December 2021.
The Current Parcels for sale are:
1) 10340-10366 Bellwood Avenue for $26.5 million. These are the R3 hillside units against Keswick Avenue. -- http://ww.loopnet.com/Listing/25719957
2) 10328-10334 Bellwood Avenue for $7 million. This is the parking lot under Orton Avenue between the Courtyard Marriott and the existing Apartments. -- http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/25724319
LA is fully zoned for adequate housing but developers are backing SB 9 and 10, and its author Scott Wiener, because this bill allows for an expedited and streamlined development process, bringing in increased multi-family housing units onto subdivided single-family lots, increasing the number of residents and causing crowding in low density neighborhoods. Profits go to commercial real estate speculators with nothing for the current single-family home residents facing erosion of their property values.
Infrastructure has not kept up with current growth. With increased needs for water, electrical, gas, sewage, emergency services, digital cable additions, and street upgrades to accommodate the new builds, not all developers are working with the local community to insure that these improvements will be made. What essentially changes is the low-density character of the neighborhood.
SB 9 and 10 was written by San Franciscans to deal with San Francisco problems but stupidly includes the whole state. We understand the need for increased housing, and advocate for a more cooperative (over predatory) model in which to increase density while maintaining the standard of living and character of our area. We advocate for local input on appropriate designs for multi-family developments in our established low-density neighborhood.
As State legislation is adopted or revised, the City issues local implementation guidance as needed. Earlier this year, Los Angeles City Planning issued memorandums on Senate Bill (SB) 9. In addition to SB 9, SB 290, SB 728, Assembly Bill (AB) 634, and SB 478 all took effect on January 1, 2022. The bills expand State Density Bonus incentives for student and moderate-income housing, authorize the purchase of for-sale units by a qualified nonprofit, address jurisdictions' ability to increase covenant terms beyond 55 years, and permit Floor Area Ratio (FAR) increases in low-density multi-family neighborhoods and commercial corridors.
City Planning has prepared two memorandums for the local implementation of these laws. The first memorandum includes SB 290, SB 728, and AB 634 and describes the changes, clarifications and additions to State Density Bonus Law. The second memorandum focuses on SB 478 and summarizes FAR allowances for sites permitting a density between three and ten units and clarifies minimum lot size requirements. Both memorandums will serve as interim guidance for staff and project applicants regarding the implementation of bills until the City’s Density Bonus Ordinance is updated or these memorandums are otherwise superseded.
Key Provisions and Restrictions
Note: Included below is a partial list of provisions and restrictions. Please consult the memorandum for detailed instructions.
Density Bonus Memorandum
1) Allows one Density Bonus incentive or concession for student housing developments when the development contains at least 20% of the units for Lower-Income Students;
2) Reduces parking requirements for housing with at least 40% Moderate-Income units within one half-mile of a major transit stop to 0.5 parking spaces per bedroom; 3) Removes findings of a “specific adverse impact on the physical environment” as a basis for denial of a Density Bonus concession, incentive, or waiver;
and Clarifies definitions.
Authorizes a qualified nonprofit housing corporation to purchase a for-sale unit created through Density Bonus.
Clarifies that State law does not preclude the adoption of a local ordinance that requires affordability terms beyond 55 years.
SB 478 Memorandum
Provides minimum statewide standards on Floor Area Ratio (FAR) and minimum lot sizes for housing development projects of three to ten units on land zoned for multi-family or mixed-uses, commonly known as “missing middle” housing. Specifically, for eligible projects, the bill provides that local jurisdictions may not:
1) Impose a FAR standard that is less than 1.0:1 for an eligible housing development project consisting of three to seven units,
2) Impose a FAR standard that is less than 1.25:1 for an eligible housing development project consisting of eight to ten units,
3) Deny an eligible housing development project located on an existing legal parcel solely on the basis that the lot area of the proposed lot does not meet the local agency’s requirements for minimum lot size, and
4) Impose any other lot coverage requirements that would physically preclude a qualifying project from achieving the permitted FAR described above.

Designed by architecture firm, GGLO under the direction of Gerhard Mayer, Principal in the Los Angeles office, the proposed 78-home subdivision for a 4-acre site in Compton, CA – known as Parmelee – is a walkable subdivision of single family homes designed at a high enough density to support public transit, while also delivering the benefits of single family living (fee simple ownership, wealth creation, individual expression) at an affordable price point.
