While it'll be heard again before the council in a week and half, phase two of the controversial Playa Vista project, which'll add 2,600 homes, office buildings, retail, and green space was tentatively approved by the City Council today by a vote of 12-2. Notably, City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who was tarred and feathered by angry Playa Vista homeowners after he requested changes to the project, voted against the development. The only City Councilman who asked a question about the project was Councilman Paul Koretz, who worried about animals being run over cars, and wanted to know whether there was an adequate wildlife corridor. In the end, Koretz also voted "no." Meanwhile, a second reading of the proposed plan will take place a week from this Tuesday.
