The item was originally scheduled to be voted on today. But the council agreed unanimously without discussion to delay the vote three days.
If approved, the ordinance would put a Residential Floor Area (RFA) District over approximately 700 homes in a 5-street Mid City neighborhood between San Vicente Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue north of Wilshire Boulevard. This would be the second RFA District approved in the city following the February 2012 approval of a RFA District in Studio City.
The ordinance was fast-tracked last week by the council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee, which voted to recommend the new regulations with an urgency clause at the request of Councilman Paul Koretz, whose 5th District includes Beverly Grove. If the City Council votes Friday to approve the ordinance, it could take affect in about 5-8 weeks later depending upon how quickly Mayor Eric Garcetti signs it.
