Mega-Senior Living Facility Turned Down

We have reported previously about a proposed mega-senior living facility on a block of single family houses in the neighborhood.

Many residents were concerned about the proposal for a for-profit nursing home at 846-848 N. Sierra Bonita Ave. (between Waring and Willoughby), especially because the same owner already operates another nursing home on Gardner, directly behind the proposed facility.

Today we received this e-mail from John Darnell, our tireless field deputy in Los Angeles City Council member Paul Koretz’s office:

This application was denied by the Zoning Administrator.  The property owner could possibly do a small elderly facility in each house (one at 846 and one at 848), but he wanted to combine both houses to make one big one. We opposed the application, and in the end, he was denied anyway. The property is allowed to have a small facility in each location, but we have not heard any plans to do so.

Good news for neighborhood tranquility.  Our community already has numerous senior homes, which is fine.  But it sounded like this operator wanted to create a Godzilla-like complex on a quiet residential block – without providing any parking for the business’s employees, and without working with neighbors to mitigate any problems that could arise.  That, we don’t need.
