No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
MAYOR GARCETTI AND THE WILD BUNCH TURN TAIL AND RUN FOR COVER, ACKNOWLEDGING IGNOMINIOUS DEFEAT BY DROPPING PLANS TO APPEAL THE RECENT SUPERIOR COURT JUDGEMENT THROWING OUT THEIR DOA HOLLYWOOD COMMUNITY PLAN!
SO NOW IT’S BACK TO THE DECREPIT MUNICIPAL DRAWING BOARD FOR THE SCUM SUCK BUREAUCRATIC CITY HALL PLANNERS SINCE THE LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT MADE MINCEMEAT OUT OF THE ORIGINAL HOLLYWOOD COMMUNITY PLAN!
WITHOUT FANFARE, CITY ATTORNEY FEUER HAS EMBARRASSEDLY THROWN IN THE TOWEL: NO APPEAL! NO HOW! NO WAY!
The documentary proof is currently in our hands thanks to sharp-eyed Ms. Ziggy Kruse, who just ferreted out what appears below, amounting to the official surrender papers contained in next Tuesday’s LA City Council agenda (2/18/14).
Disgusted Mayor “Tricky Ricky” Garcetti and Company have been pushed into humbly starting all over again from damn square one … compelled by the successful intervention of our tripartite law suits to re-write The Hollywood Community Plan, practically from scratch, (rescinding EIRs).
Mr. Big Shot City Attorney, Mike (“The Loser”) Feuer, confidentially informed the thoroughly dejected LA City Council members in mournful closed session this past Wednesday, Feb. 12, that the City of LA didn’t have a chance in hell of prevailing if attempting to reverse Superior Court Judge Goodman’s rock solid recent decision in the community plaintiffs’ favor. Therefore, much to our delight, appeal plans are now stone cold dead!
Grassroots Hollywood neighborhood opposition (no pun-intended) has effectively trashed this bogus Hollywood Community Plan!
Please, Mayor and Council of Fifteen, when re-writing and self-approving the replacement Hollywood Community Plan, why not try following the law … so History won’t repeat itself! Okay?
Everybody please carefully read the City’s official surrender statement that appears beneath and then start celebrating!
ITEM NO. (19)
MOTION (O’FARRELL – PARKS) relative to amending the General Plan’s Framework Element and revising the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Hollywood Community Plan Update (HCPU).
Recommendation for Council action:
INSTRUCT the Planning Department, in consultation with the City Attorney, to:
a. Initiate the process of amending the General Plan’s Framework Element to make clear that the Framework Element does not require, and was never intended to require, Community Plans themselves to contain monitoring policies or programs, and that the Framework Element’s monitoring programs are discretionary, not mandatory, and that they are contingent on the availability of resources and competing priorities, as the Court of Appeal held in Saunders v. City of Los Angeles, Case No. B232415.
b. Prepare the resolutions and ordinances necessary to “rescind, vacate and set aside all actions approving the [HCPU] and all actions certifying [the EIR] adopted in connection therewith, as well as all related approvals issued in furtherance of the HCPU,” as described in the trial court’s February 11, 2014 Judgment. As stated in the Judgment, the phrase “all related approvals” refers only to those “quasi-legislative actions necessary to carry out the HCPU and the related California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) documents” and does not refer to “those adjudicatory approvals not challenged which the City may have made under the HCPU after its adoption by the City.”
c. Include in the resolutions and ordinances a provision stating that it is the City Council’s intent that vacating the quasi-legislative acts above shall, by operation of law, revive the Hollywood Community Plan and the zoning ordinances that existed immediately prior to adoption of the HCPU.
d. Initiate the process of revising the EIR for the HCPU; and report to Council within 30 days on any necessary budgetary resources, work scopes and timelines for these policy actions.
