Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council Still Not Buying Ponte Vista
In a special meeting on Saturday Oct. 26, the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council voted to oppose the latest version of the proposed Ponte Vista housing development, which will go before the Los Angeles City Planning Commission next week.

The board voted 6 to 4 to disapprove the project, which has been scaled back to fewer than 700 units, features a a 2.4-acre public park on Western Avenue, and has scrapped plans for apartments all together.

Before voting to disapprove the project, a motion was made to approve it, but did not get a second. Despite the scaled back plans, members of the council were still concerned about a host of issues surrounding the long-debated project, namely traffic congestion on Western Avenue.

Today is the last day to submit public comment before the latest plan goes before the Planning Commission next Thursday.
