~ The Development Review Committee has unanimously approved two large developments, TownePlace Suites Hotel, a 109-room, five-story complex at the southwest corner of West Huntington and South Myrtle, and the AvalonBay Project, a mixed-use development composed of a single building containing 154 apartment residential units, 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a five-story, six-level 286-space parking garage on a 2.1-acre site at the northwest corner of Myrtle and Chestnut. Both proposals will be considered by the Planning Commission on Aug. 15, at 7:30 p.m.
~ LA County is placing a new tax proposal on the November 2018 ballot that could cost the average homeowner about $80 a year, or 2.5 cents per square foot cost on all impermeable surface area (pavement, concrete, rooftops, etc.) per year. The money is to pay for separate storm water sewer systems "to address both clean water and climate change by improving water quality, while also helping Los Angeles County comply with State and Federal Clean Water Acts."
