The West Carson Transport-Oriented Development (Project No. 2017-003499-(2)) was approved by LA County Planning. The next approval step is the LA Board of Supervisors on Oct 23 2018.

The plan allows for a huge redevelopment of roads, malls and housing in our neighborhood, including multi-story apartment/retail buildings and shops along Carson between Normandie and the I-110.

Unless we act, we will soon be seeing three-story combination apartment/retail buildings close or adjacent to our properties, along Carson, Vermont and elsewhere, totaling 2,455 new residences, with insufficient parking.

Issues this will create for us:

  • Increase in traffic congestion
  • Increased noise pollution
  • Overflow parking into neighborhoods
  • Privacy loss as homes and yards will be overlooked by apartments
  • Obstruction of sunlight by tall buildings
  • Decrease in air quality

Objective 1 of the West Carson TOD Plan is "To ensure the health and safety of residents, employees and visitors". As such we petition LA Supervisor, Mark Ridley-Thomas to review this development and support local residents by limiting the number of new apartments to be built, ensuring each new apartment has sufficient parking, limiting the height of new developments to ensure homeowners privacy and sunlight, and in other ways assess the environmental impact of the development, to ensure quality of life for current residents is not diminished.
