Dear Ms. Zasadzien:

I am writing you with concerns about the proposed lot plan for the property at 22255 Mulholland Drive.

• The development plan is inconsistent with the neighborhood, proposing 19 houses 33’ high in a primarily single story neighborhood.
• The proposed private street access point on San Feliciano Drive is very dangerous. It will be only yards south of the intersection of Cerrillos Drive at San Feliciano. This is a downhill, blind curve – an accident waiting to happen.
• This project will adversely impact the last standing oak savanna west of Topanga Canyon Blvd. and north of Mulholland Drive.
• It will also negatively impact the existing wildlife corridor which provides homes and stop-overs for raptors, herons, raccoons, opossums, etc.
• The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is deficient in responding to the community’s letters and concerns. It did not address what will become of the remaining oak trees as a result of the project’s plan for extensive grading, rerouting of natural drainage, and over 640 linear feet of retaining walls (some as high as 11 1/2’).
• The proposed grading of 60,000 cubic yards of soil includes 1,600 truckloads of new soil brought into the site, dramatically changing the topography and endangering the oaks.
• The increased construction traffic will cause noise, dust, air pollution, and gridlock for over a 3-year period.

I ask the City to reject the proposed plan and require a viable alternative that sufficiently addresses the above concerns.

Thank you for your consideration.
