The current City Council/Redevelopment Members have an exemplary opportunity to broker a new deal wherein the developer turns a profit on a building thatenhances the community where it's situated. We are trusting the City Council to do the right thing at the appeal hearing by scaling back 4043 Irving Place (irrespective of its inappropriate zoning) to comply with the overriding stated goals of the Culver City General Plan to be "consistent with existing neighborhood character": 1. The building should be no higher than 32 feet from grade and contain no more than 24 total residential and/or commercial units. 2. Any excavation adjacent to the Spanish Colonial Landmark Homes must be at least three feet from the property line. 3. Setbacks on Lafayette Place and Irving Place must match the neighborhood average setback. 4. There should be vehicle entrance(s) and/or exit(s) on both Lafayette Place and Irving Place to balance the flow of traffic to/from the building onto both streets.
