Greetings, and welcome to today's City Scoop. Here's what's happening Thursday in West Hollywood:
A proposed four-story, five-unit condominium project slated for 1019 N. San Vicente Blvd. comes before the Commission this evening. On appeal, City Council reviewed the application April 4 when two residents spoke in opposition, saying the project was "too modern in design," according to the city report. Staff recommends the Commission consider all pertinent testimony and recommend that the Council approve the project based on the revised building design. The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.
