Last week, the City Planning Commission approved a new specific plan for Warner Center that's supposed to help the Downtown of the Valley become a more "cosmopolitan" live/work hub--it lays out a plan and guidelines through 2035. Under the plan, "Warner Center would have a mix of uses designed to promote a jobs housing balance. These uses would have access to local and regional transit, aggregated, publically accessible open space, local services, neighborhood serving retail and other land uses promoting walkability and transit use ... The proposed Plan would include a balanced mix and concentration of jobs (including high-paying creative and industrial jobs) and housing to support a complete sustainable center." It also calls for "high quality development, attractive, shaded, walkable streets with activity along the sidewalks and a network of open space around which development is oriented."
