The Los Angeles Planning Commission has delayed a recommendation to develop Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock to attract pedestrians instead of motorists.
Commission members said they liked a citizens' proposal to turn the street into a pedestrian mall. But they gave the Eagle Rock Citizens Advisory Committee and city planners until Dec. 14 to submit specific guidelines for a design review board to follow, better incentives for developers to provide community services and a list of culturally or historically significant buildings in the area.
The citizen group wants to preserve 11 structures in the area, two of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, planning department hearing officer Michael Davies said. They are the 20th Century Women's Club Building and Eagle Rock City Hall.
Councilman Richard Alatorre told the commissioners meeting in Los Angeles City Hall that the plan resulted from concern over mini-mall developments along Colorado Boulevard.
