City Council Passes ICO to Protect 5 Neighborhoods

The City Council voted to approve an ICO to protect homes in Brookside and Sycamore Square and three other neighborhoods and prevent out of scale new homes that tower over older homes from being built in the neighborhood.

The Los Angeles City Council voted today to pass an Interim Control Ordinance that would help prevent tear-downs and regulate the size and scale of replacement homes in Brookside and Sycamore Square (along with PicFair Village, Wilshire Vista and Sherman Oaks).

As earlier reported, the ICO would place certain restrictions on the issuance of building permits, to make sure the projects in question “maintain the massing, size, height and setbacks compatible with existing single-family units” in the neighborhood.  It would help fill the regulation gap while the city considers more permanent solutions via revisions to its Baseline Mansionization Ordinance.
