Subject line: UPDATE: Venice Neighborhood Council takes first step in opposing Ray Hotel/Developer channels "1984"
"For those of you who don't know, the Venice Neighborhood Council had an entire Land Use and Planning Committee meeting devoted to the Ray Hotel Wednesday night. At stake was whether or not the current LUPC was willing to amend or overturn a previous LUPC decision to support the Ray Hotel in its entirety - even though the hotel asked for significant variances making it nearly twice as tall and half again as dense as anything else around it (and don't get me started about the parking!)."
