What’s Wrong with the Hollywood Plan in a Nutshell
Community plans must based on Facts, but the Hollywood Plan is based on Myths.
MYTH #1: The biggest myth is that Hollywood is growing so fast that by 2030, we will have 250,000 residents. (249,092 rounded off to 250,00)
FACT: By 2030, Hollywood will have 190,000 or fewer residents.
1990: 213,883 residents
2000: 210,794 residents
2010: 198,228 residents 7.3% decline over 20 years
If the 7.3% decline continues for the next 20 years, we would have about 183,700 people. The City is off by 66,200 people.
MYTH #2: Hollywood needs dense high-rise construction.
FACT: We already have enough housing, but it could be upgraded. To have 250,000 residents by 2030, the downward trend would have to reverse itself and increase by 25.4%. There is no fact to support the idea that the decline with abruptly change and become an increase. All factors point to people moving away from density.
FACT: Under the pretext of a huge population increase, the Plan up zones core Hollywood so immensely that developers can build anything they want and you have no right to object. The 55 story Millennium Skyscraper will be within the code. This Plan provides no rights to citizens to control future projects.
A Community Plan must be based on facts and not on fiction.
