A brief look at items of interest to Hollywood residents that are on upcoming agendas at City Council, City Council Committees, Neighborhood Councils, various City Boards and Commissions, and County Board of Supervisors. LA City Agendas can be found here and LA County Board agendas can be found here.

As always, the meeting times, locations, and agendas are subject to change, so be sure to check and confirm.

Monday, May 7:

  • Budget and Finance Council Committee (10:00 AM)
    • This is a special meeting of the Budget and Finance Council Committee for consideration of the Mayor's Proposed Fiscal Year 2012-13 Budget. Department General Managers, City Staff, and CAO will report as scheduled or instructed.
    • Departments/Reports Scheduled: CAO Budget Memo, and any other City Departments as needed.
      • Note: Schedules will change so check here for updated schedules (look for Budget and Finance Agendas).

Tuesday, May 8:

  • City Council (10:00 AM)
    • Item 2 (Council File 09-2832)
      • Consideration of Planning and Land Use Management Council Committee report relative to a Mitigated Negative Declaration and an Zone and Height District Change Ordinance for the Argyle Lofts project at 1800-1802 North Argyle Avenue.

      • The Argyle Lofts project is a proposed 16-story (186 foot tall) hotel with 225-rooms and 3,000 square feet of restaurant space. The existing 5-story office building at this site would be demolished. Note: This project was originally proposed to be developed as an 87-unit residential condominium. The original project's MND was revised/modified for the new hotel project.

    • Item 25 (Council File 12-0011-S11)

      • Motion relative to the transfer of $10,000 from the CD 13 portion of the Street Furniture Revenue Fund to the Hollywood Beautification Team to conduct maintenance activities at the Sunset Triangle Plaza in Silver Lake.

      • Viewpoints: Putting aside the merits of the Sunset Triangle Plaza project, this request is a reasonable use of Street Furniture Revenue Funds as an argument could be made that these expenses are “incidental” to the improvements that were made to the public right of way at this location.

  • Planning and Land Use Management Council Committee (2:30 PM)
  • Budget and Finance Council Committee (1:00 PM)
    • This is a special meeting of the Budget and Finance Council Committee for consideration of the Mayor's Proposed Fiscal Year 2012-13 Budget. Department General Managers, City Staff, and CAO will report as scheduled or instructed.
