Appearing before the city council's Planning and Land Use committee just minutes ago, Planning Chief Gail Goldberg told the committee that she agreed with Councilman Jose Huizar's efforts to extend the southern boundaries of the Arts District. The PLUM committee passed the motion before it to do so, and that motion will now go to City Council tomorrow.

Huizar's motion would extend the southern boundaries of the Arts District from 6th down to Violet, a block below 7th. The change would bring 2121 Lofts, as well as the recently approved AMP Lofts into the Arts District and its guidelines. Goldberg told the committee members that the EIR process required to make the change would take 6 - 9 months, and that CRA had agreed to pay for the study.

The Arts District specific plan contains provisions that are more conducive to residential development than is the current Central City North community plan.
