Wednesday is the last day to submit a statement to the zoning administrator about the 83,000-square-foot elder-care facility proposed within the Northridge residential community of Sherwood Forest.
The address is: Mr. Fernando Tovar, Office of Zoning Administration, 200 North Spring St., Room 721, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Reference case #ZA2012-3545-ELD-SPR.
The 140-unit, two and three-story building has been called "Costco-sized" and would be constructed at 17545 Parthenia St. at the corner of Shoshone Avenue. It is opposed by the Sherwood Forest Homeowners Association, The Northridge South Neighborhood Council, and City Councilman Mitch Englander. The Homeowners Association's position was also endorsed by the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council.
Although, the elder-care facility has been a hot topic in Sherwood Forest, other similar facilities have been major issues in Chatsworth, Woodland Hills and Tarzana. See the Los Angeles Times report here.
