LOCAL PLANNING COMMITTEES ENFORCE VACANCY RATES OVER CONDO-CONVERSIONS
Forces Developers To Appeal To Council -- Will Now See Who Is In Whom's Pocket
by Zuma Dogg
It's called 12.95.2 (Vacancy Rates) and it's Villaraigosa, Council and the shady developers worst nightmare. The un-checked steamrolling of the City may be having the brakes slammed down -- but it's probably too late, anyway.
IF YOU ARE A LAND SPECULATOR WHO BUYS AN APARTMENT AND PLANS TO CONVERT TO CONDO; THEN SELL SHORTLY THEREAFTER...NOW YOU ARE SCREWED!!!
Thanks to Noel Weiss, who Zuma Dogg heard talking the "vacancy rate" law (according to City Charter), during public comment, that prevents an apartment owner/land speculator from converting to a condo unless there is more than 5% vacany in the area.
And as Wesson and Garcetti can tell you, I picked up on Noel's comments and ended up going on to believe it was the biggest steamroll bamboozle in town that needed way more attention.
So, we started going to committee meetings and started speaking about it relentlessly in from of Council (which puts it on the record), but more importantly, it was going out on TV 35...and now the City Attorney was forced to inquire as to why vacancy rates were being ignored for so many years (a sidestep of the Charter and therefore sidestepping the law).
AND NOW...local planning committees like Rosendahl's West LA and Garshady's West Hollywood local planning committees and NC's are now paying attention to, and enforcing the vacancy rate issue (and other Ellis Act issues), and are saying "NO" to the high density, bullsh*t projects, because the roads are way too crowded, schools are way too crowded, the mayor cannot hire enough police to keep up with the rising demand, DWP may not be able to supply water to all these high-density environmental killers; and you can expand the 405 all you want -- or run the 90 freeway into Lincoln Blvd in Marina Del Rey...BUT YOU AREN'T EXPANDING THE SIDESTREETS AROUND THEM. YOU AREN'T REDUCING CLASSROOM SIZE...YOU AREN'T HIRING NEW COPS...YOU AREN'T DOING SH*T...EXCEPT IGNORING THE LAW -- AND WORSE, AND NOW THE STATE AND COUNTRY HAS TO SPEND MONEY INVESTIGATING YO AZZEZ...
SO NOW, these shady developers who are getting rejected by the community, because Villaraigosa and Clowncil igorned all that above mentioned stuff, and more,
have to put an "appeal" on the agenda -- and make all 15 Councilmembers sign the conversion permit with their own blood, from their own hands.
The first two, Rosendahl and Garshady's are up on the agenda soon. Basically, the shady, crybaby developers will be aksing Council and the Mayor to not only igonore the City Charter (and therefore the law), but ignore local planning committees, and be like Nike and, "JUST DO IT".
SO WE ARE ABOUT TO FIND OUT IF THESE COUNCILMEMBERS MEAN WHAT THEY SAY, WHEN THEY SAY THEY ARE FOR THE RESIDENTS WHO ELECT THEM -- OR JUST A BUNCH OF SPINELESS, GREEDY BASTARDS WHO ARE IN THE BACK POCKET OF THESE DEVELOPERS.
ZD THINKS IT'S GONNA BE VERY HARD FOR COUNCIL TO STAND UP TO SHADINESS, CAUSE I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY LEADERSHIP AMONG THE FIFTEEN, CURRNENTLY IN OFFICE. ALMOST ALL OF THEM ARE JUST A BUNCH OF LAPDOG LOSERS WHO ROLL OVER FOR THE MONEY. AND TIE UP ANY GOOD SH*T FOR A YEAR IN COMMITTEE.
I WISH Y'ALL WOULD GO JUMP INTO THE LA RIVER...AKA: THE CONDORODO RIVER. Cause that's all it is...a bad, expensive CRA excuse to build a row of high density housing along the river. [ZUMA DOGG SAYS SECTION 8!]. And CM Ed Reyes was forced to admit isn't even a watershed, so it doesn't even actually serve a purpose, except to allow the City/CRA/short list of preferred contractors to spend and make a lot of money, not only on the "river", but on the row of high density housing to follow. Hence, "The CONDORODO RIVER". SEE YOU AT THE HEARINGS, ED!"
