"Do Real Planning" [Thanks for admitting that you are NOT!]
Presented by members of the Los Angeles City Planning Conmission [Who represent their "conhootients" on various City agencies, like Neighborhood Council and 912 Review Conmission]
The West Los Angeles Area Planning Conmission has invited the City Planning Conmission to give its presentation on “Do Real Planning”, a 14-point land use planning policy [Ha! That copied Deming's 14 Points...it's not about the magic number 14], which the Commission spent 18 months studying. [While the streets became more crowded with new homeless, and others had to leave the City.] We, like the City Planning Conmission, have been energized in this assignment by the Mayor [so you know this is a big scam], our new Planning Director [sent to do his dirty work], and by you. [The people who contribute the tax money for the City's "UN-REAL" density schemes that Villaragoza has been "planning" since his USC "After Sprawl" report/precursor to his new racket, ("Dumb") "Smart Density".]
Like you, we have been struck [no, you are paid politicains, who are not at risk of gentrification caused by the eminent domain steamroll you just approved yesterday, you shady bunch of "going straight to hell" mutherfu*cker/enjoy the robbery and it's financial rewards off the people who elected you to represent them, now -- you backstabbing, compuslive actual theives] by the absence of shared principles [absent of principals -- now you're talking] that guide both planning decisions and the many companion decisions generated elsewhere in City Hall. [Heeeeel yeaaaaaaaaah!]
Both the West Los Angeles Area Planning Conmission and the City Planning Commission are eager to have you participate in the conversation after the presentation. [SO they can go behind their closed doors and do whatever the hell (which is where they are all going) they want, anyway. And just claim eminence over THEIR domain.] The presentation will conclude in under an hour and will be followed by a question and answer session. [You ask the questions, they dodge the answers.
Ask them about loopholes, cronieism, Bradley/E.B.E., CM staffers on NC board and 912 Commission, and how Planning project "expiditors" and people who represent developers like Metro LA, and activist developer coalitions like PROH-LA not only sit on Glassell Park NC board as Chair and Members, but appear before other NC Councils for project approvals, and NC members vote in more than one NC, and nine year olds, and school kids vote in NC elections for elected NC boards (a City agency, under the Brown Act) who in turn fast-track/"expidite" these projects with Councilmembers who sit on the Planning Committes. So if you want to talk about "Real Planning", you have to get real about that, first. I mean, how many more times can ZD sit in these meetings and hear the Planning commissioners say, "Well...RELUCTANTLY, we'll approve this EIR/Zoning disaster, just once, since it's a close call. Thank you." ENOUGH WITH THE "RELUCTANTLY ONE MORE TIME!" THAT ONLY WORKS THE FIRST HUNDRED TIMES!]

WEST LOS ANGELES AREA PLANNING COMMISSION 2 JUNE 20, 2007
An Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer [Yes, I would certainly say not paying city workers with checks that they have to cash with identification, allowing anyone from the planet, to fly to LA, and be making money working for the city the next day, and the city doesn't have to know who they are, or anything about them, it appears certainly is "equal" and "affirmative" action.
PERSONALLY, I LOVE IT!!! YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE GUY WHO LIKE TO SELL THINGS ON VENICE, AND I LIVE IN MY VAN, AND MY ONLY BANK ACCOUNT IS MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT. AND I DIDN'T NEED ID FOR THAT...So I'm not complaining...just reporting it..cause no one else seems to have covered it. I'll check the LAzy Times and Daily News again.
ANYWAY...MAKE PRINT OUTS OF ALL THE ZD STORIES ON PLANNING (type "zuma-density" and "zuma-glassell") in mayor sam blog search for all the articles), then head down to this Joint Planning Commission Meeting and start doing some reading, during public comment, or question and answer, or tea and crumpett time.
