(November 10, 2017) -- City staff has released its revised proposed Land Use Element / Density Increase maps.
City management also issued an accompanying press release at this link. It makes no mention of the effects of SB 35 and other statewide housing-related legislation on the height or density impacts of the proposed revised Land Use Element maps.

We publish the above material as breaking with newsworthy reaction added as received:
Councilman Daryl Supernaw [weekly e-newsletter]: "While most of the height increases were removed east of Clark Ave., much of the density remains on the western side of our district. The Los Altos Shopping Center, southeast of Bellflower and Stearns, remains mixed use commercial/residential. The proposed heights, while reduced from the August map, still include increased density on the north/south corridors of Clark, Los Coyotes Diagonal, Redondo and Cherry. Also, the east/west corridors of 10th St., Anaheim and PCH include increased height. For this reason, I will, not be able to support the proposed Land Use Element map for CD4.">
Councilwoman Stacy Mungo (mass emailed "Neighborly News"): "...Please review these maps and share your thoughts on what you like and what concerns you may have. I am also scheduling conversations with neighborhoods to hear input on this version of the maps. If you have specific questions, or are interested in hosting a small meeting yourself. Please reply to this email and we will do our best to schedule several community conversations and neighborhood meetings specifically for 5th District resident as possible. I want to thank everyone for their participation in this process. These are new maps, but not the last word, and I look forward to continuing the conversation."
