As many of you know, Westfield has submitted a plan to the City that outlines their vison for the future of the Promenade site in Woodland Hills which they own. With any site of this magnitude, this plan must be thoroughly vetted by relevant City agencies and your voice is a crucial in this process. Over the next few months, Westfield has been planning community meetings throughout the West Valley to discuss the details of the project with residents. I want to ensure that my constituents’ voices are heard and that each step of this process is transparent and meaningful.
There are a few dates before the new year that are important to this effort:
On December 14th at 6:30pm, the Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council will be hearing a presentation on the potential Westfield Promenade project before taking it under consideration. This is a chance to hear the formal presentation, listen to the questions asked by the neighborhood councilmembers, hear Westfield’s responses and offer your thoughts during their public comment period.
Additionally, if you have a public comment that they would like to share regarding what environmental impacts should be studied for this project, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org due by Monday December 12th at 4 pm. Doing so insures that it will be part of the official record. You can find more information about the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) and the specifics going forward here. There will be future opportunities for comment throughout the process.
For more background on the project in its entirety, here is a piece from the LA Daily News when Westfield officially submitted their plan.
