Current Land Use & Planning Committee
Chair: Matt Wersinger
Third Thursday of each month at 7pm at Del Rey Square, 11976 Culver Blvd
Committee Mission Statement:
The Land Use Committee is tasked primarily with reviewing and making determinations on developments within Del Rey that are seeking any kind of zoning or land use variances. The committee holds public hearings and asks developers to mail notices to the public inviting them to attend, allowing stakeholders a voice on projects within their communities.
Further, the committee has worked to improve both safety and mobility within the community. Task forces made up with committee members have a running dialogue with CD11, Caltrans, LADOT, and LAPD West Traffic and work continuously to identify and fund improvements to roads, sidewalks, bicycle paths and parks.
