Founder and Past President Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization
To all our friends and family of the WHHO, thank you for attending the
Memorial and honoring the memory of Gordon.
We all lost a valiant giant guardian and a dedicated leader in our community. Gordon Murley, was a founder and long serving President of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization (WHHO) since 1984. Long recognized by LA Councilmen and Mayors as one of the most knowledgeable and articulate resources of LA’s zoning and planning codes, he was appointed to the powerful South Valley Area Planning Commission where he served as Vice President for the Commission for almost a decade. He was also one of the initial founders of the Woodland Hills-Warner Center Neighborhood Council and represented his area continuously until his death, serving as Council Vice-Chairman and Parliamentarian for a number of years.
Our prayers and thoughts continue to go out to his wife Silvia.
May his soul rest in peace.
OUR PRIOR MEETING:
If you missed the last meeting on April 22nd with Larry Green:
Larry presented the details about the Promenade Project and noted that it will be build in stages with the start probably 2020. He took questions and listed to your comments and took some of the suggestions very seriously.
This is a big project and will have positive and negative effects on our community from traffic congestion to a strain on water, power and policing. The Project (Called Promenade 2035) would include approximately 1,432 multifamily residential units, approximately 244,000 square feet of retail/restaurant uses, approximately 629,000 square feet of office space, approximately 572 hotel rooms and an approximately 320,000-square-foot, 15,000-seat Entertainment and Sports Center. The proposed uses would be provided in several buildings throughout the Project Site that would transition in height from one story and three to four stories at the corner of Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Erwin Street, to 28 stories at the opposite corner of Owensmouth Avenue and Oxnard Street, across from the existing high-rise office towers to the south. The Project will be build in stages with completion around 2035.

POSITIONS TAKEN BY THE WHHO BOARD
1. The Board of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization has voted to support Measure "S" - the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative ballot measure - appearing on the March 7th ballot. According to WHHO Executive Vice President John Walker, the majority of the WHHO Board members believe that passing Measure "S" will bring certainty to the City Planning process and stop the proliferation of spot zoning approvals that encourage developers to build projects that do not conform to the existing City General Plan, the existing Community Plans or the existing Specific Plans.
2. We have worked hard with the community to make the Westfield "Village" the best it could be for the Valley and will continue to do so in the future as well.
3. We have taken the position against the Valley Fair having a permanent home at Pierce College. We have always taken the position that this land is for Education and is to be used only for projects that are part of the education curriculum and run by Pierce, not a controlling outside entity. The 51 st Agricultural District has its own Board and contracts with all the vendors and decides what will be done. Save Pierce for the quality education it is now providing and let the administration concentrate on what the community demands it do in education.
4. Waiting for the final
proposal regarding the development on the north side of Mulholland across from Louisville High. The
proposed project originally included 39 condos in a currently R1 zoned area.
neighbors and the Design Review Board were against this. We have not taken a
final position on a proposed development on the north side of Mulholland, across
from Louisville High at
You can go to Save Oak Savanna web site, for anyone wishing to learn more or get involved and voice your opinion of the development. The web site is http://www.saveoaksavanna.org
5. Oppose the unconditional paving of dirt Mulholland.
6. Since 2004 We have opposed any further conversion of light manufacturing, small business office space to very dense apartment complexes without replacement in kind of the facilities demolished in Warner Center.
