Weddington Golf and Tennis is a rare and magnificent 16 acres of open space along the L.A. River in one of the most densely developed parts of our city. Today, this land is threatened by plans for a 200-condo complex. Join us as we fight to keep it 100% recreational open space for the benefit of the public.

Developer of Weddington Golf and Tennis presented plan to SCNC Land Use Committee Wednesday, November 9, 2016.

The topic of this meeting was the current application VTT-74209 for proposed subdivision of the Studio City Golf and Tennis property into two separate parcels. The meeting included presentation of current project scope by the Applicant’s representative, Mr. Aaron Green of the Afriat Consulting Group, with follow up questions and answer session including an opportunity for public inquiry and comment.

Please be advised that this was a “fact finding” meeting only, and did not result in any motion for recommended action to the SCNC Board.

Discussion was guided toward the following primary objectives:

  • Understanding the new application and project scope relative to earlier applications and documentation including the original DEIR prepared under case number ENV-2001-1196-EIR.
  • Understanding the development strategy relative to likely sequence, time frame and structure of processing this and the related applications.
  • Understanding the depth of the developer’s commitment to their stated goal of enhanced outreach and engagement with the Community.

At which time there is sufficient understanding of these and other details, the Land Use Committee will schedule a Special Meeting with the objective of eliciting broad public response, and making a recommendation to the SCNC Board for official action.
