Parcel 9 U with Marriott Hotels

In light of the Los Angeles County Regional Planning’s approval of the Marriott Hotels on Via Marina on July 22, 2015 (see post above), the Ballona Institute has instituted an appeal to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors regarding their decision. The BOS approval of the lease-option (released only in draft form to the public so far) has been delayed twice. So far no date has been announced for release of either the final draft of the lease-option or the BOS hearing on same.

    A re-read of this post is only suggestive of more Court and County corruption. The Court approved a “draft”? If the final draft is actually what was approved but withheld from the public, then it constitutes every violation of fiduciary responsibilites of all governing parties, as well as every definition of the word ending in “feasance” (mal-, non-, mis). That could mean anything. Nor does it address the full funding issue incumbent on Hardage/Marriott. This lot has remained vacant for a great number of years. Is development of every last inch of MdR truly necessary? While traffic issues may not concern those making the decisions, it should – no setback for pedestrians, coupled with endless bikers who’ve forgotten streets were intended for cars, make this section of Via Marina a living deathtrap. In my view, this should be included in the appeal, for the Shores also lacks a sidewalk. For many renters, I believe the end is nearing.
