The president of the Studio City Residents Assn. reacted angrily Friday to the city Planning Commission's inaction on a proposed one-year moratorium on construction of buildings taller than three stories along Ventura Boulevard.
The proposal, which stalled Thursday on a 2-2 commission vote, cannot be forwarded to the City Council unless it receives the approval of three members of the five-member planning commission.
"We are extremely upset and distressed about it," said Dan Shapiro, president of the homeowners group. "We will work extremely hard to get that vote reversed."
Vote Set for Thursday
The moratorium is again scheduled for a commission vote on Thursday.
The City Council on Oct. 1 gave final approval to an identical moratorium on Ventura, between Valley Circle Boulevard in Woodland Hills and Coldwater Canyon Avenue at the western edge of Studio City. But the commission Thursday balked at extending the height restrictions east through Studio City, despite the urging of Councilman Joel Wachs, who represents the community.
