The North Business Park Specific Plan (NBPSP) is an effort to guide the inevitable redevelopment of the aging business park area on the north side of the 101 Freeway, west of Lindero Canyon Road. Rather than responding to individual property owner requests for changes to zoning, the City views the NBPSP as a tool to provide a framework within which redevelopment can take place that will allow property owners to see some economic benefit for reinvesting in their properties, while enabling the City to ensure that development that is approved can be accommodated by the existing or planned infrastructure. The City maintains much more control, and can better anticipate and avoid problems, if the redevelopment of the area is looked at as a whole, rather than as individual lots without any context.
As part of the community outreach and engagement process, the City’s project team is convening a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) of up to a dozen community members to advise the team on the project. The CAC’s responsibilities will be to connect with other community members/neighbors to help inform the process; amplify both decisions and concerns along the way, and to advise on what NBPSP alternatives are best for Westlake Village. The project team is looking for members who represent a diversity of thought and neighborhood/geographic representation.
