LA County's major planning law amendment (LCPA) will be heard by the California Coastal Commission on Thursday, November 3 in Oceanside (agenda).

Let's tell the Commission to SAY NO to LA County's plans and YES to a community-based plan that increases recreational opportunities and minimizes impacts on local communities and the environment. Take Action!

We are alarmed by LA County's plans to redevelop the Marina away from its lower-density residential/ recreational destination into a high-density, high-traffic, high-end shopping and living haven.

LA County's pending amendment to the Marina's planning and zoning laws (LCP Amendment) will have major negative impacts on our community of residents, recreational users, tourists, local businesses and native birdlife.

LA County Redevelopment Plans - Next 2-5 Years

Members of the public CAN change the course of development in the Marina. We ARE Marina del Rey along with the Coalition to Save the Marina and the Outrigger/Rowing clubs have done it.

To achieve more, we need a united and activated community to oppose LA County's amendment to the Marina planning/development laws.

Many of you may think this is a done deal so why bother. However, most of these projects are not "done deals" and can be stopped. But not without your support TODAY (see next column).

STOPPED - Two 5-story hotels on Mother's Beach public parking lot and picnic tables

STOPPED - 19-story Woodfin Hotel and Timeshare Suites on the wetland Parcel 9U at Tahiti and Via Marina
