West Hollywood will have  a pop-up on West Hollywood West design guidelines at the National Night Out West Hollywood West Residents Association (WHWRA) Block Party/Potluck.

The WHWRA party will take place Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Sherbourne cul-de-sac, located at Ashcroft Avenue and Sherbourne Drive.

At the pop-up, “community members can learn about updates and provide input,” according to the city, which is also accepting input online at westhollywood.mindmixer.com. “There have been concerns from some residents in the neighborhood about the impact of recent new homes on the character and charm of the neighborhood, while other residents say they want the ability to build extensive additions or new homes.

“The city’s Community Development Department, together with an experienced consultant team, is working with the community to develop new rules, including zoning code changes and design guidelines. These new rules will help provide better direction to homeowners, architects and builders to create designs that are appropriate and contribute to the charm of this eclectic neighborhood.”

The WeHo West Neighborhood is bounded by Melrose Avenue on the north, Doheny Drive on the west, Beverly Boulevard at the south, and La Cienega Boulevard on the east.

National Night Out is an annual event to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention and neighborhood camaraderie.

i look forward to grilling the “experienced consultant team!” As of now the proposed standards do not apply to pending projects. Homebuilders will not be a “moving target.” Beware, writ action can name a city employee as being arbitrary and capricious! (A lawsuit looks very aesthetically pleasing on your credit report!) You best follow the code and not the code you wish existed. xo Tinkerbitch!
