The Santa Monica Rent Control Board will vote next month on whether or not to approve developer Marc Luzzatto’s request for a removal permit for his Village Trailer Park development at 2930 Colorado Avenue.

The removal permit approval is a necessity before Luzzatto’s can demolish the remaining trailers for his mixed used development project.

The Rent Control Board vote was scheduled for Thursday night, but the item was tabled for Sept. 13 because an attorney representing several Village Trailer Park residents was unable to attend the meeting.

The Santa Monica City Council will resume its deliberations on the project on Aug. 28 following its meeting last month (July 28) where about 70 residents spoke during the public comment period.

If approved, the handful of mobile home residences will be replaced with 438 residential units, 20,860 square feet of retail space, and up to 5,085 square feet of ground floor creative space. Factoring in all of the elements of the proposed project, the total development would be 378,460 square feet in size.
