NBC Universal EIR Hearing

9:45 AM PDT on August 13, 2012

This Tuesday at 9:30 a.m., the L.A. City Planning Department will hold the first of what is expected to be several public hearings to discuss the new version of the NBC Universal Evolution Plan.

Because some interested parties, including our office, did not receive very much advance notice of this hearing, I wanted to make sure that you knew about it. As now proposed, the project includes 1.45 million square feet of office space for media firms, a 327,000 square feet expansion of Universal Studios and two 500-room hotels.

The proposed plan has eliminated the nearly 3,000 residential units it previously featured, and instead will focus on entertainment, film and tourism amenities.

The project proposal does still require the developer to spend $100 million on transportation improvements, including widening nearby streets, adding an off-ramp to the nearby freeway, etc.

This is your opportunity to hear the details of the project, including how it will impact surrounding neighborhoods in the short and long term. At the hearing, you will also be able to peruse the environmental impact report. Most importantly, the hearing gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard about the project.

The meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14 in Van Nuys City Hall Council Chambers, located on the 2nd floor of 14410 Sylvan St., Van Nuys, 91401.

Of course, we welcome your thoughts and input about the new proposal as well, and you can contact our office anytime at (213) 473-7002 or leave a comment below.
