City Of Santa Monica Rescinds Move To Raze Trailer Park
SANTA MONICA (AP) — c
Tuesday’s vote was taken shortly after several new members, elected last month, were sworn into office.
The council previously gave final approval to an ordinance allowing for a mixed-use development containing 377 condos and apartments and nearly 25,000 square feet of retail space. It would be built on the current site of the modest, 1950s-era Santa Monica Village Trailer Park.
In tossing out that vote, the new council ordered city staff to meet with the developer to discuss plans for reconfiguring the project and providing affordable housing and other benefits to trailer park residents.
