The meeting is held at 7:30 p.m. in Tauxe Hall at the Community United Methodist Church, 801 Via de la Paz, the public is invited. Neighbors are encouraged to comment on proposed projects and construction.
After presentation of all of the evidence, the Board makes a determination. The PPCL does not regulate the protection of views but does look at each project as to massing density, height, setbacks and landscaping.
There is one home listed for review under new business: 814 Hartzell.
Up for final review are six residences: 577 Radcliffe, 583 Radcliffe, 1106 Hartzell, 822 Galloway, 950 Fiske and 15303 Friends.
Learning to Declutter
The Palisades Senior Alliance lecture on August 27 is “Help, I have too much stuff: Learning to Declutter.”
The program takes place at the Palisades Branch Library community room, 861 Alma Real, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The program is free, and the public is welcome.
Speakers Ellen Satkin and Polly Ross have facilitated the “From Collecting to Cluttering” workshop at WISE & Health Aging in Santa Monica for more than four years.
Issues challenges include: “Whether it is collections of memorabilia left over from years gone by, closets filled with clothes that we might need someday, piles of unopened mail, or a spare room filled with things that we’re not ready to give away quite yet, clutter is stressful. It’s disquieting to look around our spaces and see a messy world out of control. But thinking about getting organized can also produce anxiety.”
Satkin and Ross will suggest tools and approaches to address the problem.
