550-554 San Juan Ave, Oakwood Subarea

*****************************************************************************************

LUPC ORGANIZATION/STRUCTURE & PROCESS

All Venice planning cases are divided into 8 categories:

1. North Venice
2. Oakwood
3. Milwood
4. Southeast Venice
5. Oxford Triangle (including Oxford Triangle Specific Plan)
6. Venice Canals
7. Marina Peninsula, Ballona Lagoon East (Grand Canal) & West, Silver Strand
8. East of Lincoln (Venice Community Plan), Board of Public Works, Coastal Transportation Corridor Specific Plan, Glencoe/Maxella Specific Plan

These 8 categories roughly follow the Venice Coastal Zone Subarea map from the Venice Land Use Plan

Venice_Coastal_Zone_Subareas_Map

 

Each of the 8 LUPC members besides the Chair will rotate through these areas over their 2-year term on LUPC, such that they spend approximately equal Interim Terms in each category/Subarea.

 

Also, two LUPC members will be responsible for each category/Subarea at any one time, as a Subarea Team. They can divide the work however they decide to do so, working on all cases together or splitting up the cases and working on them individually, or some combination thereof. The Chair will assign the LUPC members to the Subarea Teams independently, without any outside or committee member influence, with each member serving equally in all categories/Subareas during their term on LUPC. Requests for specific cases will not be honored. Also, members' Interim Terms in each category/Subarea Team will be staggered such that when one member rotates off of a Subarea Team the other member remains for an additional Interim Term, thus serving on that category/Subarea Team for two consecutive Interim Terms, with two different team members.

 

The Chair will distribute all new cases within 48 hours of receipt to the committee members assigned for the Subarea where the case is located. The team will get back to the Chair within 72 hours with their custom Project Description for each case and with their recommendation on whether each case should be heard by LUPC as a VNC Fast Track Project case (expedited processing) or as a regular VNC Case.

 

See LUPC web page for VNC Fast Track Project criteria and process description:  
http://www.venicenc.org/committees/lupc/

 

If the team doesn't agree on the classification for a given case, that case will not be classified as "Fast Track." The Chair can override a Subarea Team's "Fast Track" recommendation (as can the other LUPC members, the Public and the Board members).

 

Once the Fast Track processing classification is determined for a case, within 72 hours each Subarea Team will inform the Neighborhood Committee and the Community Organizations email list of the new case(s) in the Subarea, and will invite the Neighborhood Committee to all Community Outreach Meetings in their Subarea. (Please cc the LUPC Chair and Vice-Chair.) In addition, they will recruit volunteers, including through the Neighborhood Committee, to help do analysis and research on cases from within the neighborhoods of the Subarea.

 

When each Interim Term is over, it will be up to the discretion of the Chair to make what will be a rare exception for the member who is moving to a new category/Subarea to keep working on any given unfinished case on which they are LUPC Staff, with the norm being to leave the case with the applicable Subarea team. Also, to the extent possible, the team can try to make sure that substantially all work on the case is completed prior to the end of the Interim Term.

 

When the City issues determinations, including VSO's and/or Coastal Exemptions, within 24 hours of receipt the Chair will forward them to the applicable team, with a cc to all LUPC members, both for informational purposes and to offer the opportunity for appeal if deemed necessary. The Subarea Team will forward them to the Neighborhood Committee and the Community Organizations email list. (Please cc the LUPC Chair and Vice-Chair.)


BENEFITS:


1. Every case will have an automatic back up (other team member), including for attendance at City hearings or Community (Board, LUPC and/or Neighborhood Outreach) meetings.

2. Team members will learn from each other, due to varying areas of expertise and length of experience between members, and due to staggering terms of Subarea Team members.

3. There will be a timely and fair categorization of "fast track" cases.

4. There will be increased familiarity with Subareas–their development standards and their individual neighborhoods' characteristics.

5. Conflicts of interest, if any, including perceived conflicts of interest, will be better controlled/managed or kept from occurring, as the case may be.

6. The team members will keep each other accountable and on track.

7. Community Outreach is significantly and naturally increased due to the involvement of the Neighborhood Council and others in the various neighborhoods, as there is much more of a neighborhood focus, and this will also result in more well attended and meaningful Neighborhood Outreach Meetings.

8. Decentralization of case management and categorization of VNC Fast Track Projects from Chair responsibility.


CHALLENGES:
Staying on track and managing the volume of both VNC Fast Track Cases and all other cases will be the biggest challenge. This will require close management by the LUPC Chair in order to assure accountability for all cases, including timely distribution and classification of all cases, and timely hearing of all cases. Transparency via posting on LUPC's web page, with real time update of assignment and status for all cases, will allow for real time scrutiny by the Public and will strongly motivate the LUPC Chair to sustain the accountability for all cases as well as the integrity of the VNC land use and planning process at all times.

CRITERIA FOR “VNC DE MINIMUS PROJECTS”

This is NOT an official processing procedure but rather a process used in making recommendations to the City on projects in Venice. Neither the LUPC or the VNC Board speaks on behalf of the City of L.A. but rather they speak only on behalf of the community of Venice, which elected the Board members and which will have to live with the related decisions; and the advisory recommendations contained in the VNC's recommendation letters do not purport to take any action that may be required under applicable law by the VCZSP, L.A. Municipal Code or California Coastal Act.

Purpose: efficiency for both the volunteers of the VNC and its LUPC as well as for the City, the State and the Applicant.

1. IF a Venice Project is for a residential use and is NOT on a Walk Street

AND

2. IF the Project is:

a. an improvement to an existing single or multiple-family dwelling

OR

b. demo of and/or new construction of a single-family dwelling, duplex or 2-home structure (condo or small lot subdivision)

AND

3. IF the Project is in full compliance, without any exceptions, adjustments or variances, with all applicable provisions of City (VCZSP) and State (Coastal Commission-certified Venice Land Use Plan of the City's General Plan and the Coastal Act) regulations (if there are any conflicts, the more rigorous regulation will apply)

AND

4. IF evidence is provided re. compliance with (or exemption from):

a. Subarea development standards and policies with respect compatibility in mass, scale and character (MSC) with the existing surrounding neighborhood, and there is no significant adverse impact to adjoining lots or the immediate neighborhood

AND

b. Rent Stabilization Board (RSO) and State Mello Act affordable housing requirements, including ownership information for all three consecutive years prior to the application date (where the owner is a company or trust, owner(s) thereof must be provided),

 

THEN the assigned LUPC Subarea Team will review the case for purposes of recommendation as a “VNC De Minimis Project.”

 

The process is subject to reasonable changes, at the discretion of the LUPC Chair.

 

At least two weeks but no more than four weeks after LUPC receives the Project, the LUPC Subarea Team will decide whether the Project should be recommended for the VNC De Minimis Project categorization, and if so the Project will be put under the Agenda Item “Review of Cases for ‘VNC De Minimis Project’ Categorization” for the next LUPC meeting, unless the Applicant requests a delay. The Applicant will attend the meeting to provide an overview of the case and case documents and answer any questions. If the VNC De Minimis Project categorization is denied by the LUPC, the project will revert to normal LUPC case processing, including assignment of LUPC Staff, Neighborhood Outreach Meeting, LUPC project presentation and Public Hearing, placement of case documents used by the LUPC Staff on the LUPC web page, LUPC Staff Report, and VNC Board hearing.

 

If the LUPC approves the project for VNC De Minimis Project categorization, the LUPC will forward its recommendation to the VNC Board (via the Board’s Administrative Committee) for inclusion on the next VNC Board Meeting Land Use & Planning Committee Consent Calendar. Cases on the VNC Board's LUPC Consent Calendar may be removed by any VNC Board Member or Stakeholder. Removed cases will go to the end of the VNC Board's agenda item for Land Use and Planning Committee (Old Business) and will be heard as a regular LUPC case, with discussion and public comment.

 

If approved by the VNC Board as a VNC De Minimis Project, a letter including all cases approved as such will be sent to the Chief Zoning Administrator and the Coastal Commission Deputy Director, with copies to the senior Planning Staff, the Council Office representatives, the VNC Board members, the LUPC members, and the Applicant’s Representative. The letter will state that:

 

“Upon the review and recommendation of the VNC Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC), the above projects have been determined to be VNC De Minimis Projects. As such, these projects were reviewed in two Brown-acted, local public hearings, and based on the information provided each case appears to be in full compliance, without any exceptions, adjustments or variances, with all applicable provisions of City and State (Coastal Commission-certified LUP and Coastal Act) regulations. If there are any conflicts, the more rigorous regulation will apply. In addition, evidence was provided re. compliance with (or exemption from) the applicable Subarea development standards and policies re. compatibility in mass, scale and character (MSC) with the existing neighborhood, including no significant adverse impact to adjoining lots or the immediate neighborhood, and re. Rent Stabilization Board (RSO) and State Mello Act affordable housing requirements, including ownership information for all three consecutive years prior to the application date (where the owner is a company or trust, owner(s) thereof were provided). The VNC Board reserves the right to take a different position at a later date in the event that meaningful project details of a particular case, as initially presented to the LUPC, are changed without the consent of the affected parties.”

 

*******************

 

Under consideration, to avoid the necessity for follow up review to check for any changes made subsequent to VNC review and to compensate for the many existing problems with City Planning communications and controls over the process:

Once the VNC De Minimis Project recommendation is approved by the VNC, Applicant and Owner for the case will sign a notarized Affidavit that states that if one or more of the meaningful details of the Project as presented to the LUPC are changed subsequent to the LUPC’s review, that Applicant and Owner will obtain the consent of the affected parties (adjoining Property Owners and Residents) and will provide the details of such change(s) and related consent documents to the VNC LUPC Chair and the 11th District City Council Planning Deputy prior to the approval of the Building Permit, whether prior to or during construction; and further, that if the Applicant and Owner do not do so, they further agree that if requested by the LUPC Chair, City Council Planning Deputy or affected parties (adjoining Property Owners and Residents), they will instruct the City to put the Project on hold and any development occurring at that time must cease until such time as they obtain the consent of the adjoining property owners and residents for such changes, the approval of the LUPC for such changes, and the approval of the appropriate entitlements from the City and State, if any are required.
