Council has instructed the General Plan Advisory Committee to study the plan to eliminate R1 zoning across Culver City. This means that our current regulations on single family homes and curtilage would go out the window. If these plans succeed, developers would be able to demolish any home, anywhere in the city, and replace it with a fourplex which reaches almost to the property line.
It’s not hard to visualize this. Simply look at what’s being built in our adjoining neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
So what can be done?
First is to keep your eyes on this page. We will let you know about upcoming events and action alerts.
You should also make your opinions known to City Council. You can find their contact info on the City Council page.
We are also keeping tabs on Culver City Neighbors United and their efforts to stop this upzoning. We recommend people get in touch with them.
We currently see two ways to stop this – a ballot initiative requiring voter approval of zoning changes, and getting new Councilmembers elected in 2022.
