Members of the community are invited to participate in the next Doheny Village meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17.
Opticos Design was hired last year to help residents refine the vision for the area. Over the course of five days, Opticos staff held a design charrette where residents, city officials and Opticos staff discussed ideas of what they wanted to see in the village.
During a September meeting, Dan Parolek, principal of Opticos, showed the public a concept for the area, which pinpointed four district environments, each with its own zoning code.
Cindy Nelson, consultant/project manager, said the meeting will be a continuation from the September meeting when Opticos talked about the form-based code that could reshape Doheny Village into a walkable urban district.
“The primary issue raised at the prior meeting was whether or not the parking standards were adequate to address the future demand for the proposed land uses,” Nelson said.
The meeting will take place at DoubleTree Suites, located at 34402 Pacific Coast Highway at 4 p.m.
