There are two meetings this week concerning development in Marina del Rey.
The most important meeting is the one listed first below:
1) If you can only attend one meeting of the two scheduled for this week on the subject of Marina del Rey, choose this one and fill out a speaker card and express your concerns. The Los Angeles County Marina del Rey Design Control Board will be considering a final revised plan being submitted by developer AMLI Development Corp for an apartment complex on Via Marina and Panay Way (see full description of this project in February 16 post) The meeting is schedule to begin at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 in the Burton Chace Park Community Center on Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey. If AMLI receives final approval from the DCB it will proceed to obtain a permit from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety and begin construction as soon as feasible. The Design Control Board is in charge of approving all developer plans in Marina del Rey.
2) The other meeting is on Tuesday evening between 6 and 8pm, same location as above, at Burton Chace Park and is just a drop-in open house concerning a summary of the “Envisioning Marina del Rey” process (see post of February 13, 2014). The Visioning Group, part of the Department of Regional Planning, functions in an advisory only position on general issues about the future of Marina del Rey. It does not address specific development proposals.
