WCC Board May Meeting Set for Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Via Zoom

In order for our WCC to hold a meeting this month and take up business, WCC will hold its first Zoom Teleconference/Videoconference Meeting* onTuesday, May 19th beginning at 7:00 p.m. .  (Special thanks to John Heidt for setting up this Zoom meeting.)  

The one major item from our March agenda that is rescheduled for this month is a special presentation by Zuriel Espinosa, City Planning Associate from the Los Angeles City Planning Department, on possible amendments to the Westwood Village Specific Plan. These amendments under consideration include food use definitions, numerical limitations on food uses, parking requirements, and location of parking.


In addition to Zuriel, joining us on our Zoom Teleconference meeting will be Christine (Mahfouz) Saponara, Senior City Planner, and Susan Wong, City Planner.  All three planners are very familiar with Westwood Village and our Specific Plan: both Zuriel and Christine previously staffed our Westwood Design Reveiw Board (DRB) for multiple years, and Susan Wong spent several years in Westwood as a UCLA graduate.
