Bonin On Bundy

Mike Bonin, Brentwood’s City Council represenative, released the following statement regarding the proposed development at Bundy and Olympic…

Last month, the City Planning Department hosted the first public hearing on a proposed mixed-use development project at the Martin Cadillac site on the corner of Olympic and Bundy in West LA. This project is proposing to build residential units, office space, and retail stores near the soon to be opened Expo station at Olympic and Bundy. This is a significant project for Westside communities, and it could have a major impact on the future of our neighborhoods. 

I feel strongly that transparency and public input are crucial components of the planning process – especially for a project of this size, so I have insisted that the Planning Department host additional public hearings to allow you to offer input on the project. Another hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 4:00 pm at the West Los Angeles Municipal Building’s Second Floor Hearing Room (1645 Corinth Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90025).

An auto showroom is not the best use of a property adjacent to the only Expo Line stop in Council District 11, and a genuine transit-oriented project makes a lot of sense, but I am insisting it be the best transit-oriented project in the City. I need your help to shape this kind of project. Will you attend the March 2 hearing to offer your input on how to change and improve the current proposal?
