Proposed new Belmont Village Senior Living Facility in Westwood

Proposed new Belmont Village Senior Living Facility in Westwood.

There is a Belmont Senior facility in Westwood at 10475 Wilshire Blvd. A new Belmont Senior facility is proposed at the current site of Westwood Presbyterian church at 10833 Wilshire. Some residents object to the request by Belmont to construct 12 stories. Most noteworthy, this is above the established quota of 6 stories. Belmont stated “the request for additional height meets the eldercare facility ordinance requirements which would allow them the extra height.”

Firstly, you can read more about the proposed project https://dailybruin.com/2019/03/01/proposed-westwood-senior-living-center-receives-mixed-reactions-from-community/.    http://www.neighborsforsensiblegrowth.org

Secondly,at a recent February 2019 HWPOA homeowners meeting local residents expressed their opinions about the project. Some residents are in favor of creating more senior care rooms. Additionally, some residents expressed they are pleased to learn of the new proposed facility. Conversely, other residents felt the proposed building would set a terrible precedent for future developers who may wish to exceed existing height rules. Furthermore, other residents felt this is too large a project for the site.

Thirdly, Belmont’s representative said “the lower height restriction is not profitable”. Also,residents expressed “all senior centers are welcome, but at the zoned height allowance of six stories”. Another resident stated “homes and buildings surrounding the project would be impacted by the large structure”. Comments included “I felt my homeowners board didn’t notify me ” As a result, there have been petitions and committee’s formed to convey different resident views. Holmby Westwood Neighborhood Council members met with the various neighborhood boards to discuss this .http://www.wwnc.org

Most noteworthy, HWPOA recently voted to now oppose the larger height project(March 12, 2019). Members voted “they would be comfortable with the 6 story development”. What do you think?

In conclusion,some neighbors have set up websites for those concerned.  https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/stop-support-the-westwood-specific-plan-join-800-other-supporters . Your thoughts?.
