LAPD Plans Go Back to Cultural Affairs

The plans for the new LAPD headquarters go back to the Cultural Affairs Commission on Thursday (PDF agenda). Up before the Commission are the architectural plans of the headquarters building, the parking facility, and the motorpool.

If you remember back to February 3rd, you'll recall that at that point Cultural Affairs took a stand against the building, refusing to approve the architectural plans when they didn't feel comfortable that the use of the site was in the best interests of the city. Since the Commission did not vote on the plans at that time (read the February report for more info on that), the agenda for Thursday reads that the plans were "Conceptually Approved by Default 15 days after the Commission meeting of February 3, 2005." It will be interesting to see if the Council has done anything to assuage the misgiving the Commission had at that point, or if Cultural Affairs will again refuse to endorse the facility. City Council can choose to act without or against Cultural Affairs wishes, so I'm still not sure how much this meeting actually means.

If you want to attend the meeting, the Cultural Affairs Commission meets on the 10th floor of 433 S. Spring St. The meeting is at 9:30am, on Thursday, May 19th.
