      On Tuesday, October 8 between 5 & 8 p.m. the Department of City Planning will
      conduct a public workshop on the proposed Community Design Overlay District
      (CDO) for Cypress Park and Glassell Park. The meeting will be conducted at
      the Church of the Divine Savior in the Church Hall, 610 Cypress Avenue in
      Cypress Park. The boundaries of the proposed Overlay Zone are basically the
      San Fernando Road corridor between the 110 and the 2 Freeways including all
      of Taylor Yard, including some residential sections between Cypress and San
      Fernando Road. The Overlay Zone also includes the entire Eagle Rock
      Boulevard corridor in Glassell Park between San Fernando Road all the way up
      to Avenue 40, (also) including some residential blocks and the area between
      Eagle Rock Boulevard and Verdugo Road.

      According to the Planning Department the intent of a CDO is; "to improve the
      appearance and identity of the multi-residential, commercial, and industrial
      areas for new projects. The CDO is an effective tool for promoting a
      distinctive community character, improving the aesthetic attractiveness,
      protecting areas of interest and providing a strong sense of place and
      identity. These guidelines will be used to preserve unique architecture,
      regulate signage, improve building facades and improve public space. These
      guidelines will apply primarily to new projects or significant improvements
      that require a building permit."

      The purpose of the workshop is to discuss and examine options for the CDO.
      Employees from the Dept. of City Planning will be attending and cover
      specific provisions of the CDO. They are particularly interested in hearing
      our opinions and concerns. It cannot be overstated how significant this
      proposal is to our two communities primarily and secondarily to the entire
      northeast. This is a chance to get involved at the beginning of the process,
      become informed, and make a lasting difference.

      If you have any questions or for more information please call Phil Bacerra at
      213/978-1201 or Terry Speth at 213/978-1180. All information is available in
      Spanish too.
