Heckler’s Veto? Please! Get it right! Is that too much to ask?

Read today’s article in the Los Angeles Times. Lawyer and Hollywood “neighbor”, David Ambroz attempts to reduce our valid concerns over the Hollywood Community Plan as a heckler’s veto. All we are asking for is a little courage and integrity to come forth from the City’s leaders. And now we’re asking that same intense involvement of our Hollywood neighbors, the ones who want to spare Hollywood’s streets the massive insult of more gridlock and density that will overwhelm our emergency response services and infrastructure. If that’s called the heckler’s veto, so be it. Hey, Hollywood neighbors: Please attend this Tuesday’s City Council meeting and let’s show them what a heckler’s veto really looks like. Call your council office Monday afternoon for parking at City Hall (don’t know their number? Call 3-1-1 and get patched in!)

Hollywood population density at issue in development fight by Bob Pool

  1. Flatlanders are NOT asking for more density. Flatlanders have already voted with their feet. They are leaving the densified areas around the subways. In the census tracts contiguous to the Metro Stations, Hollywood lost 4,405 persons after the subway had been constructed. The 2010 US Census data showed that the subway which the HCP says revitalized Hollywood have significantly harmed Hollywood. The projects around the subway station are all money losing failures and are mostly unoccupied.

    This is not about hillside residents and flatlanders. The fight is the sledgehammer developers against all of the residents of Los Angeles. Hollywood is a transportation chokepoint that will make travel between the Valley and Central Los Angeles more difficult if the kind of density that the HCP proposes is ever realized. The way to avert this disaster is to prevent the construction of the enormous buildings that the developers are motivated build only because of profits and not because they serve any community purpose.
