    I was at the Wilmont meeting where we voted on the moratorium, and this link and the Curbed article and the headline on the Lookout all missed one thing: we voted for a moratorium *until* the Downtown Specific Plan and the LUCE-compliant zoning ordinances are in effect. The current rush to build in Santa Monica is all an attempt to get development agreements signed before the DSP and zoning laws are on the books. I am not against development in Santa Monica. In fact, I *want* all the stuff that’s planned along the Expo Line. But I also want all this development to be in line with these important planning documents, and the builders are racing to get DAs inked for their monster projects before the zoning laws (and the makeup of the City Council and Planning Commission) change.

    Also, fuck Curbed.
