8150 Sunset is a Dangerous Mega-Development Fueled by Donald Trump

A developer with Donald Trump connections proposed a gigantic mega-project for the gridlocked intersection at Crescent Heights and Sunset. It was wildly inappropriate, and Rory Barish and her neighbors brought their concerns to City Hall. The politicians ignored them -- and again sided with a developer. Vote Yes on S on March 7.

Vote Yes on Measure S to Fix the Rigged System at City Hall

L.A.’s planning system is rigged, unfair and broken. It pushes forward luxury mega-projects that cause traffic gridlock, the destruction of neighborhood character and the displacement of longtime residents, including senior citizens on fixed budgets.

Vote Yes on Measure S — our best hope to protect residents and give them a greater voice in how their neighborhoods grow and develop.

Measure S will:

  • Ban developers from writing their own self-serving “Environmental Impact” reports, an obvious conflict of interest that is used against communities as an unfair tool of overdevelopment
  • Make the Los Angeles City Council do its job, by creating a rational citywide plan for Los Angeles tied directly to infrastructure limitations, true population figures and community desires
  • Preserve neighborhoods and institute a protective 2-year timeout that stops the Los Angeles City Council from its current practice of spot zoning – bending the rules to approve mega-projects and inappropriate development that destroys neighborhood character and displaces longtime residents and small businesses
  • Protect affordable housing projects by exempting them from the 2-year timeout

We are not opposed to growth and change; we understand that these are inevitable. But what’s not inevitable is reckless and irresponsible development by a handful of politically connected developers and their army of lobbyists, attorneys and PR consultants.

We urge you to support Measure S on the March 7, 2017, city ballot.
