RESOLUTION (DRAFT) RESOLUTION TO SUPPORT APPEAL IN THE CASE NO. ZA-2017-796-CU-1A, 1919-1921 S. 4thAvenue (Arlington Heights) Be it resolved that the United Neighborhoods of the Historic Arlington Heights, West Adams and Jefferson Park Communities Neighborhood Council (known as UNNC) is making a formal recommendation to the South Los Angeles Area Planning Commission and the Los Angeles City Council to SUPPORTthe Appeal against allowing a parking lot in the residential zone at 1919-1921 South 4thAvenue in Arlington Heights and to OPPOSEthe Associate Zoning Administrator’s Determination that would allow this use.
