Public input on Gelson’s project to mount once more

While public comment has stayed dormant for some time, discussions will soon ramp up once again on a divisive large-scale housing project.

On March 4, the City Council Chambers at City Hall will hold a public hearing by the Architectural Review Board to review a proposed housing project at 2601 Lincoln Blvd., which would replace the Gelson’s grocery store and accompanying retail center with 521 apartments in twelve 5-story buildings.

The hearing will cover project design, colors, materials, landscaping, lighting and signage; and serves as a chance for public input on the long-discussed Lincoln Center Project endeavor. It was initially scheduled for late January before being pushed into February, and later postponed until March 4.

The project was submitted for City review on March 11, 2022, and has since received administrative approval from City Planning staff. In a May 2023 administrative approval presentation by Koning Eizenberg Architecture the presentation notes that the mixed-use housing project is proposed to include 521 multi-family residential units, including 53 very low income units.

The plan also calls for 34,800 square feet of grocery, retail and restaurant space at street level, 2,400 square feet of outdoor dining and display, and 79,100 square feet of personal storage. Parking tabulations state that 825 parking spots will be provided in the project.

The amount of very low income residential units permits developers to exceed city mandated density limits under a state density bonus, which could be further exploited via a new law. Assembly Bill 1287 expands state density bonuses for developers that hit affordable and moderate income goals, and combines with Senate Bill 713 (which prohibits a local government from applying development standards if the standards preclude construction of development permitted by density bonus law) to put developers in more control of the project. Property owners SanMon Inc., a subsidiary of Balboa Retail Partners, are working with Koning Eizenberg and Cypress Equity Investments on the project.

Not without its detractors, the Lincoln Center Project was subject to scrutiny during a February 2022 community Zoom meeting, where various concerns were raised by residents. Public input included skepticism on the scale of the project, its impact on traffic and water supply, the number of affordable units and the smaller retail component. Later in the year, resident group Santa Monica Coalition for a Livable City created a petition to oppose the project, which received over 2,000 backers with similar complaints.

A recent post about the March 4 meeting on community social media site NextDoor also had plenty of negative sentiment, with many pointing out the negative traffic impacts associated with a project adjacent to the already hectic Lincoln Blvd. Some residents have also voiced support for the development in the past, stating that it was important to address the local housing crisis and help Santa Monica meet a state-mandated requirement to facilitate almost 9,000 new units by 2029.

Along with Gelson’s, businesses at the 2601 Lincoln retail center include Fantastic Sam’s Cut & Color hair salon, Non Stop Sushi & Sake Bar, McCarthy Pharmacy and Dry Clean X-Press.

Opinion: We need districting, even if it threatens those in power

One universal truth in politics is that those in power want to stay in power. From the President right down to your local HOA board, folks in power will construe the facts to support why they should remain in power. And that is what we are seeing in Santa Monica; folks who claim to be progressive, opposing by-district voting and the California Voters Right Act (CVRA) because it threatens their continuance of power.Currently the SM city and SMMUSD charters call for at-large elections.

One universal truth in politics is that those in power want to stay in power. From the President right down to your local HOA board, folks in power will construe the facts to support why they should remain in power. And that is what we are seeing in Santa Monica; folks who claim to be progressive, opposing by-district voting and the California Voters Right Act (CVRA) because it threatens their continuance of power.

Currently the SM city and SMMUSD charters call for at-large elections. This means that every election we as a city vote for three or four at-large seats.

The 2001 CVRA is meant to give minorities and the marginalized representation, specifically if they have a majority within a geographic segment, but are a minority in the overall municipality. A good example of this is the city of Escondido, which is roughly 49% Latino and yet had only had two Latino city council members in 125 years.

But we have minorities on our city council and school board, so we don’t need districting, right? That is the counter argument that proponents of the current system make.

It’s a spurious argument, and I honestly think the proponents know it. Because we would not have to lose minority representation to have a more democratic city. Let’s start with the long list of organizations and associations in favor of by-district elections:

California Teachers’ Association, LA democratic party, ACLU, NAACP, Service Employees International Union, California State Council State Building and Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO United Farm Workers, Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Southern California, Latino Issues Forum, California state democratic party, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Dolores Huerta Foundation, FairVote, Khmer Girls in Action, Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Asian Law Alliance, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, League of United Latin American Citizens, California Latino School Boards Association, Black, Latino and Asian Caucus — New York City Council, Latino Caucus of California Counties, California Teamsters Public Affairs Council and Pomona Valley Democratic Club.

That’s a pretty heavy list. It also includes the Los Angeles County Democratic party, the California Democratic party and Senator Alex Padilla.

All politics are local, right? Well not in Santa Monica. If every city council member is responsible to every corner of the city and no specific council/school board member is responsible to any specific area, then there is no direct accountability or responsibility. Who do I go to with my neighborhood’s issues? Take your pick of council/school board members and hope it works out. It’s nonsense and they know it.

Do you think John Muir would have been allowed to rot and deteriorate due to water intrusion for 20+ years until children were breathing mold and it was ultimately shut down if there had a been a member of the school board who was specifically and directly responsible to the parents of that school? No way.

Would decades of planes crashing and noise pollution have been ignored had one city council member been tasked by their direct constituents to find solutions to the problems faced by the airport and Sunset Park residents? No. Did it cost SM an airport? Maybe.

One of our former mayors was famously asked in a deposition in the CVRA suit brought against the city “Would you want a hazardous waste storage facility in your neighborhood?” Answer: “I wouldn’t mind.” Come on. That’s rubbish.

There’s a Foucauldian web of folks who have for decades controlled the groups that elect our city officials. They don’t want there to be district-based elections because they will lose their grip on our city — and they know it.

So, they spend millions of our tax dollars in attorney’s fees fighting something that they know is more democratic with honestly no real argument against it, other than, ‘everything is fine here’. Well look around. Is the Promenade fine? Our big golden workhorse that used to pay for all kinds of things with tourist and retail taxes — it’s not fine.

Homelessness is growing and our humanitarian instincts are overwhelmed by a problem that seems to just get worse. Our city budget is ruinous because a despicable pedophilic city employee abused our kids for years at the Police Activities League and the city is responsible for paying the massive settlement. Our schools are widely disproportionate in their class sizes, test scores and states of maintenance.

There are real challenges to be faced, so let’s do it democratically, through representation.

The California Voting Rights Act is about enfranchising voters — giving them voice. Where is our voice in this city? Who represents you? Let’s look at the schools… Do we choose which school to send our kids to? You could, it’s an option (once). But no, we go to our neighborhood school site. We do that because it’s about community and connection and the school represents our neighborhood. So why wouldn’t our local school board member be tied and associated to specific schools, when we already operate that way with regard to admissions?

The first of the three proposed maps provided for the SMMUSD districting is of course absurd. It is meant as a rebuke to the school district and LACOE’s insistence that Malibu is contiguous with Santa Monica. The opponents of the map know this an absurd map, because it’s meant to be! But they have yet to provide an alternate map.

So, let’s stop messing around. Let’s stop playing games and put together some districts that represent our city. We can use the school neighborhood boundaries as a starting place, since we all seem to be relatively fine with those. And then we can adjust to do our best to ensure that minorities and neighborhoods are represented.

Let’s do what the California Democratic party, the LA county Democratic party and the California Supreme court have all said is the right thing to do. Let’s enact districting, even if it hurts those in power, because it is the right thing to do for our democracy.

"Extremely dangerous situation" unfolding in Hollywood Hills and Santa Monica mountains

From CNN's Eric Zerkel

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles said an “extremely dangerous situation” is happening in the “Hollywood Hills area and around the Santa Monica Mountains” just outside of Los Angeles, adding that “life threatening landslides and additional flash flooding” were expected.

"Numerous damaging landslides, flooded roadways, submerged vehicles, and flooded creeks and streams are ongoing," the weather service said.

The areas have received widespread rainfall totals more than 5 inches in the last 24 hours, with some spots topping 9 inches.

The locations are under a "particularly dangerous situation," with a flash flood warning until 9 a.m. PST as rain continues to fall over the area, with up to 3 inches of additional rain possible.

Notable California communities threatened include Malibu, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Brentwood and Burbank.

More than 14 million people in Southern California face rare high risk of excessive rainfall

From CNN's Robert Shackelford

Over 14 million people are under a high risk of excessive rainfall on Monday across Southern California, according to the Weather Prediction Center.

The WPC has issued a rare level 4 out of 4 warning to affected areas including Downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim and Long Beach.

Rainfall rates across this high-risk area could approach 1 inch per hour, which could lead to rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches, and possibly reach 8 to 14 inches in mountain and foothill terrains.

The warning in context: Rare Level 4 “high risk” alerts are issued on fewer than 4% of days per year on average, but are responsible for more than 80% of all flood-related damage and 39% of all flood-related deaths.

This event is part of an atmospheric river: a moisture plume pumping off the Pacific Ocean, feeding off warmer-than-average waters.

The Santa Barbara Airport closed Sunday evening due to flooding on the airfield, officials said in a post on the airport’s website.

“All commercial flights have been canceled, private and general aviation operations are paused, and the Terminal is closed until further notice,” the post read.

The airport encompasses 952 acres, according to its website.

Here's what meteorologists mean when they say "atmospheric river"

From CNN Meteorologist Mary Gilbert

Atmospheric rivers are wide-reaching plumes of moisture that act like a firehose, tapping into warm, moist air from the tropics that storms can then unload as drenching rainfall and heavy snow over land.

These types of storms are winter hallmarks across the West Coast. Not all are harmful. Weaker atmospheric rivers deliver much-needed rainfall and snow to the region during the wettest months of the year.

This rainfall and snow is vital to western water supplies. It fills up water reservoirs that are critical resources during dry, hot summers.

But atmospheric rivers can quickly become more hazardous than helpful. Excessive rainfall unleashed by these potent storms increases the chances for flooding, particularly when a series of storms happen in sequence with little time to dry out between.

Last week’s atmospheric river broke multiple rainfall records across California and triggered road closures and water rescues.

Atmospheric rivers aren’t exclusive to the West Coast. They can also impact the eastern US and happen frequently in parts of Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

California designates Santa Monica a “prohousing” city

Santa Monica, subject of more than a dozen builder’s remedy housing applications, has won recognition as a “prohousing” city by the state.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the beach city earned the designation by accelerating housing approvals and maneuvering around red tape, L.A. Business First reported.

He also named Eureka, Healdsburg, Mountain View, Petaluma, San Luis Obispo and Tulare County among the California jurisdictions supportive of home development.

Officials in each city will work with the state on affordable housing growth.

Prohousing communities, of which 37 have been named, aim to support a state goal of building 2.5 million new homes by 2030 by reducing barriers to construction and relaxing housing policies.

The communities, which include Los Angeles, Long Beach, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Fontana and Needles, are also favored by the Department of Housing and Community Development when it comes to state incentives and infrastructure funding.

Santa Monica has made strides in housing in part through its Affordable Housing Production Program, according to the state.

The program requires developers of market-rate apartment projects to contribute to affordable housing.

By signing up, you agree to TheRealDeal Terms of Use and acknowledge the data practices in our Privacy Policy.

Some 30 percent of newly constructed multifamily housing in Santa Monica must be affordable to and occupied by low- and moderate-income households. Restrictions in income are placed on the property for a 55-year period.

Santa Monica was among the first cities where developers took advantage of the builder’s remedy. The loophole in state housing law allows builders to bypass local zoning rules in cities that had failed to certify their housing plans, provided the project includes at least 20 percent affordable housing.

In 2022, Santa Monica-based WS Communities helped kick off a statewide mania — and a local panic — by filing more than a dozen builder’s remedy applications that totalled more than 4,500 units.

Last May, the developer cut a deal with the city to table all but one of its 14 applications.

Newsom said the state needs to “aggressively build more housing” to support Californians.

“Prohousing cities move to the front of the line when it comes to incentives, funding and other state resources. It’s critical for more communities to join in this distinction and build their fair share of housing,” the governor said in a statement.
