Samoa Project Update-CD2 Planning Director Karo Torossian paid a visit to last night's Land Use Committee meeting to try and clear up some misconceptions and to address the perceived lack of communication coming from the office of Councilman Paul Krekorian. First off, there is no $13 million in funds being handed over to the developer today as we've heard for the last week. The funding date is Oct 28th, but even then this project won't get a dime because it is not fully entitled yet. The developer will have to ask for an extension that will take him through February of 2012. In addition, this project can be appealed by anyone or any group, not just adjacent residents ** as reported by another blog. There were calls for more frequent communication from CD2 regarding this project and hopes that doing so will help clarify the info that the community receives (the Oct 18th funding date had been discussed as a deadline in several emails between LA City Planning and LAHD). The LUC expressed their appreciation to Mr. Torossian for attending the meeting.
