Los Angeles City Planning has released a draft ordinance to amend the Westwood Village Specific Plan. These amendments are desperately needed. The Specific Plan has not kept up with the rapidly evolving retail landscape and changing consumer preferences and the result is a crippling 32% vacancy rate in Westwood Village.

The amendments will support local businesses by simplifying regulations by:

  • Eliminating dated definitions and ratios, particularly for food use
  • Returning parking requirements of the General Zoning Code
  • Providing for administrative approval of signage pursuant to existing specific plan regulations

The Westwood Village Improvement Association is asking for two additional amendments:

  • Eliminate parking requirements for business change of use (in support of Councilmember Koretz’s motion, Council File: 18-1101)
  • Allow for off-site parking requirements to be met by leases in lieu of covenants
