Project Address: 3003 Runyon Canyon Road, Los Angeles, CA 90046
Community Plan Area: Hollywood
Council District: 4 – Ryu
Public Comment Period: August 22, 2019 – October 7, 2019
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City of Los Angeles (City), as Lead Agency, has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the proposed 3003 Runyon Canyon Project (Project). This notice provides the public, nearby residents and property owners, responsible agencies, and other interested parties with a summary of the Project, conclusions of the Draft EIR, information regarding the availability of the Draft EIR for public review, and the timeframe for submitting comments on the Draft EIR. Comments must be submitted in writing according to the directions below.
The irregular shaped Site is located within the Runyon Canyon Park area of the City and is approximately 0.5 miles south of Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills. In particular, the Project Site is just west of US Highway 101 and the Hollywood Bowl landmark. The total area that composes the Project Site is approximately 197,435 square feet (approximately 4.5 acres). The Project Site is almost entirely vacant with the exception of an existing single-family residence known as the Headley/Handley House. The Headley/Handley House was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM) #563 on July 14, 1992; therefore, the Headley/Handley House is a “historical resource” pursuant to CEQA and subject to the provisions of the City of Los Angeles Historic Preservation Ordinance.
The Project proposes the construction of a multi-level, single-family residential structure along the western side of a modified prominent ridge on the Project Site. The proposed building would include a basement, first floor area, and second floor area totaling 8,099 square feet in size not including the basement, which is excluded by the Department of Building and Safety. There would also be an attached four-car garage. The existing historical structure would remain intact and is located on the opposing eastern facing side of the modified prominent ridge. As part of the Project, the owner is requesting that the existing structure be reclassified as Accessory Living Quarters. Vehicular access to the Project would be provided via a driveway along North Runyon Canyon Road.
ANTICIPATED SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS:
Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would not result in any significant and unavoidable impacts.
