SMRR Issues Objection To Miramar’s Newspaper Ads

Posted May. 17, 2014, 8:00 am

Santa Monicans for Renters’ Rights (SMRR) issued a statement this week, claiming it “strongly objects” to the Miramar Hotel’s highly misleading full-page advertisements in the City's local papers that seeking to open “an interest list for potential residents” of apartments they might build if they get approval for their massive expansion project.

Santa Monica Doesn’t Need Monster Luxury High Rises: Letter To The Editor

Posted Jun. 2, 2013, 9:23 am

Dear Editor, We are asked to "give" public input to the Monster Miramar project for the Environmental Impact Report (EIR), before June 3, 2013.

The Fairmont Miramar has been at the center of a contentious debate in recent days. Among the biggest concerns of its proposed expansion is that traffic in the area would reach near gridlock.
