FIRST OF ALL, Y'ALL: Regarding Steven Fink's Fifteen Group (A Florida based developer with offices in Los Angeles);
Right now, it's an apartment; but Zuma Dogg has heard Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar has given the starting flag, to start preparing the plans to "demolish" the building and build a nice new luxury condos.
ONLY ONE PROBLEM Y'ALL...Those buildings are historic buildings, y'all...oh no! And there are way too many dozens and dozens of protected oak trees in the hood.
So first you would have to hire a "Historic Building Consultant" to look for a loophole to be able to demolish the building. And ZUMA DOGG's Bat Computer says...APPROVAL FOR SUCH CONSULTANT HAS BEEN GIVEN!
Secondly, you can try whatever shady tactics to try and find a loophole to cut down all them oak trees in the way of your high denisty, luxury condo demolition -- but you're gonna have to get THAT one past the SI-ERRA CLUB!!!
And if it's a demolition, then a "tenant relocation consultant" must be hired to assess the community impact. Oh no...ZUMA DOGG'S Bat Computer says one's been hired. (So if it's not a demolition, why was the consultant hired?)
And I heard there is person, living in the apartment building, who was AGAINST the secretive, potential demolition; who is now in cahoots with CM's office and is now FOR the demolition, and notifyed Huizar's office, to bow out of an NC meeting, where the pueblos were gonna show up and aks Huizar all about the secretive plan.
Of course, Mr. "Just Keep My Name Out Of It" Councilmember DID NOT show up at the meeting, so he can continue to say he knows nothing about the proposed apartment demolition that will kick many life long residents out into the streets, who sure as HELL won't be able to afford a Steven Fink "Fifteen" project near the Sears project.
So Huizar can continue to say he knows nothing about it. Well Zuma Dogg's Bat Computer is here to say he DOES know about it, because he told Fink to go ahead with the plans, hire the consultants, look for the loopholes, demolish the historic building, kick the people into the streets (that's not HIS problem), cut down the trees, and get the plan all ready...
THAT makes it easy to blow it past NC, local planning committes, public hearings, sierra club, and the City Attorney's office. SO LOOKS LIKE IN ABOUT A YEAR OR TWO, LOOK FOR THIS ONE TO COME BEFORE COUNCIL ON APPEAL FROM FIFTEEN GROUP, ASKING CURRENT CM (CAUSE HUIZAR WILL BE MOVING ON, BY THEN, ZD PREDICTS) TO OVER-RIDE CHARTER, AND THE PROCESS AND TEAR DOWN THESE WALLS, AND CHOP DOWN THESE TREES.
Better plant those million little tree buds (they look like weed clones), PLUS the hundred or so vintage oak trees you gotta cut down, so the cement trucks and campaign contributions can roll. (OOPS! They already have, and that's why this project is gonna ultimatley be steamrolled through. UNLESS ZUMA DOGG AND HIS ZAP (ACTIVIST NETWORK) CAN BE LIKE PUBLIC ENEMY AND -- SHUT 'EM DOWN...GOTTA SHUT 'EM, SHUT 'EM DOWN!
And watch out for Bill Rosendahl's Xenon condo-conversion appeal. (Has been rejected by local planning committee, Michael Zenon is filing an appeal and hoping CM Rosendahl and the other 14 cave in.) Xenon is the developer that a complaint was filed against, last week, with Department of Building and Safety for submitting for building permits on "Dirt" Burnell in Mt. Washington with substantial mis-statement of facts with intention to mislead City into avoiding EIR. (CEQA violation)
Plus, misrepresented the numbers and the kinds of trees that were in the area. PLUS, gave the illusion it was an existing street, not a dirt area. (To read full complaint, see ZD Mayor Sam story below: "Dirt Burnell".)
SO I GUESS WE'RE GONNA SEE WHO THE ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE REPRESENTING, NOW!
ZUMA DOGG FOR CITY CONTROLLER!
