After the City amended and recirculated portions of the EIR, the City Planning Commission held a hearing on the matter. The community vigorously opposed certification of the EIR and approval of the tract map. Councilmember Rodriguez also opposed the approval. However, the LA City Planning Commission certified the EIR, approved the vesting tentative tract map for 215 units and recommended approval of the vesting zone change.
The owner filed applications with the City for numerous approvals needed for the construction of its planned 215 housing units. All were approved, but on December 12, 2019, the City Council denied the zone change. In response, Snowball West filed a lawsuit against the City. The Superior Court rejected the lawsuit and Snowball West filed an appeal. That appeal is still pending.
