Some Encino Residents Just Hate Mixed-Used Development on Ventura Blvd

New, 6 comments

Following concerns about traffic and ugly bulky buildings along the main commercial corridor of the San Fernando Valley, "this month, leaders of neighborhood councils and homeowners groups along Ventura Boulevard began meeting to talk about the future and whether it's time to rewrite the 20-year-old Ventura/Cahuenga Boulevard Specific Plan," reports the Daily News. Particularly disliked is the 131-unit Avalon Bay apartment complex, according the paper. '"This idea of mixed use, it's useless. People are going to drive,' said Gerald Silver, president of Homeowners of Encino and the most outspoken critic of building residential units on the boulevard." [Daily News]
