Add the Hollywood United Neighborhood Council to the list of those .
The neighborhood council voted Monday to renew its opposition to the Hollywood Plan Environmental Impact Report. The council first voiced its opposition when reviewing a draft of the plan on May 16.
Ten board members—with the exception of Erik Sanjurjo, who abstained—voted in favor of the motion, Sanjurjo said.
The board is concerned about traffic and Hollywood becoming increasingly dense without having adequate infrastructure to support it.
“The feeling is that the planning process does not take into consideration things like how bad gridlock is,” Sanjurjo said.
Board members say the City Planning Commission ignored the council’s previously stated objections. In addition, the board disagrees with the 2005 population statistics used as part of the plan.
“The 30-year SCAG [Southern California Association of Governments] numbers planning is using are controversial,” Sanjurjo said. He said 2010 data shows a drop in Hollywood’s population.
The board will send notice of its opposition of the plan to the City Planning Commission and the City Council's PLUM Committee.
The Hollywood United Neighborhood Council also is planning to hold its own community meeting on Dec. 10 to hear from residents who may not have yet weighed in on the plan.
