Santa Monica Set To Replace Trailer Parks With High-End Homes

SANTA MONICA ( — The Santa Monica City Council is expected to give final approval on Tuesday to an ordinance that would replace one of the city’s last remaining trailer parks with hundreds of new homes.

KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports if the measure is approved, one of the city’s last holdouts of affordable housing may soon be gone.

The mixed-use development project at the current site of Village Trailer Park was tentatively approved by a 4-2 vote two weeks ago, with a final vote scheduled for tonight.

If approved, the 49-home trailer park would be replaced with 161 apartments and 216 condominiums, in addition to thousands of square feet of retail and office space.

In exchange, developer Marc Luzzatto has offered the development of parking spaces for future affordable housing along with 16 affordable housing units located at the future site of the proposed project.

Residents and nonprofit neighborhood organizations like Friends of Sunset Park have opposed the plan, but have failed to achieve landmark status for the 60-year-old site.

The City Council meeting is scheduled for tonight at 5:30 p.m.
