Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council: Vote NO on the Demolition of the Wyvernwood Community.

    1. Petition by

      Somos Wyvernwood

The Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council has had no choice but to annul the illegal vote they passed on January 23rd in support of the Fifteen Group's Wyvernwood "redevelopment" project that could displace over 1,200 families. But the fight has just begun! We still need your support to make sure the Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council votes "NO" against this so called "redevelopment" project. We need you to share and get this petition signed by all your community and networks. We need to remind them that even though they tried to illegally pass this vote we will not allow them to support the demolition of the Wyvernwood community. We need to tell them that we will not allow another Chavez Ravine tragedy in Los Angeles. Make your voice be heard.

      As preservationists, architectural historians and residents of the east side, we are writing to express our grave concern over the proposed demolition and redevelopment of the historic Wyvernwood Garden Apartments in Boyle Heights. This is one of the best designed and most significant examples of modern architecture on the east side of town, and it ought to be preserved and maintained and not demolished. Similar properties on the west side have waiting lists to live in them, because they are recognized as the best sort of urban residential design.

      15 Group has been a neglectful landlord of Wyvernwood for many years, and now wants to evict hundreds of families and build a massive development that is unsuitable for the community and which many people do not believe will welcome the longtime residents back. This is the same out-of-state developer that recently purchased and demolished a beloved Silver Lake coffee shop, The Coffee Table, demolished it for residential redevelopment, abandoned the project and left a vacant lot.

      Why should Los Angeles trust 15 Group to do what's right for Boyle Heights when they have such a poor track record in our communities?

      In a part of town which has so many vacant lots and derelict industrial structures, there are simply thousands of better choices for redevelopment than is the Wyvernwood Garden Apartments, and we urge you to consider a plan that will preserve this gem of Boyle Heights.

      best regards,

      Kim Cooper and Richard Schave

      I was born at White Memorial Hospital, raised at 2611 Ganahl St., went to Evergreen, Hollenbeck and Roosevelt,

      and had friends who would now be living in Wyvernwood. Plus livelong politics which make this one a natural. Warmly,
