The Hollywood Community Plan changes some floor area ratios that will allow for taller buildings, mainly on Sunset and Hollywood boulevards near Red Line subway stops, angering opponents who predict skyscrapers will soon dominate the area. The plan was approved last June.
Candidate Matt Szabo told the Times the plan was "excellent."
I support density around [mass] transit. I think it's an incredibly positive step forward.
Some others, like candidate Roberto Haraldson, think the council should reconsider the plan.
I really think it needs to be readdressed. As we head into the next decade any future development has to take into account people already living in the community.
Critics of the plan have argued it will accelerate growth and worsen traffic in the already congested residential neighborhoods adjacent to Hollywood and Sunset boulevards and the Hollywood (101) Freeway.
Opponents also argued the plan allows for taller buildings blocking the Hollywood sign and the historic Capital Records building.
