L.A. Council Halves Density on Site Owned by Mayor's Aide

October 15, 1987

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday reduced by nearly half the number of apartments the city Planning Commission had approved for a controversial Encino apartment project on land owned by Mayor Tom Bradley's chief aide in the San Fernando Valley.

The council unanimously upheld an Aug. 11 decision by its Planning and Environment Committee to allow no more than 120 units on six acres owned by Doris (Dodo) Meyer on White Oak Avenue south of the Ventura Freeway.

However, the case was returned to the commission for concurrence on minor changes in development rules also approved in August by the committee.

Under the council's decision, the developer can build 96 apartments, with another 24 possible if they are reserved for tenants of low-to-moderate income.

The commission had approved up to 215 units for the property.

The lower density was demanded by homeowner groups and City Councilman Marvin Braude, whose district includes the site.

Meyer was unavailable for comment, but Braude aide Cindy A. Miscikowski said Meyer and her husband, Stanley, had accepted all changes approved by the council.
