Susan Tae, supervising planner for the county commission, said that after listening to public comment, the commission asked Lennar Homes to provide more information about the project. “We’ll set a date for the developer to come back and provide us with a commitment report as far as what sustainable features can be implemented in the community recreation area and details about the requested landscaping plans to add avocado trees to the front of the project,” Tae said. Additional information about the sewer and street lights also was requested from Lennar Homes, Tae said. Representatives from Lennar Homes could not be reached for comment Tuesday. A date for the next meeting has yet to be scheduled. AVOCADO HEIGHTS – Residents living near a proposed condominium development worry the project will add traffic to already congested streets. At a hearing Monday before the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission, a handful of residents voiced their opposition to developer Lennar Homes’ plan to build 109 condos on Workman Mill Road, in an unincorporated area of Avocado Heights. The gated community is slated to be built on the site of Victory Outreach Church, which had also been blamed for worsening traffic conditions. “Our main concern and objection is the traffic,” said Lorraine Scruggs, an Avocado Heights resident for more than 40 years. “In the morning we sit there and there are three blocks of cars trying to get out onto Valley Boulevard. The traffic is bumper to bumper, and all these condos won’t help.” Residents had already expressed concerns about the added traffic, parking and noise Victory Outreach brought to the area. They have filed complaints against the church, which was established under a conditional-use permit in 1984. “The church is still noisy and filled with people every Sunday and weekdays,” said Scruggs. “We don’t want the church there anymore.” The condos would be OK, she added, “if there wasn’t going to be 109 of them.” email@example.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
