Straw Poll Open on Old Westlake Hospital Property

Westlake Revelations has begun conducting a straw poll on the issue to gauge what the residents in the area would like to see. Whether you are a resident of the City of Westlake Village or the surrounding area, we want to hear from you.

To avoid ballot stuffing and other nonsense, you must have a valid email address. You may only vote once, but each adult in your household is welcome to vote if they have their own valid email address.

Whatever the results, we will be presenting them publicly at an upcoming Westlake Village City Council meeting, and then, on Westlake Revelations' web site at http://www.westlakerevelations.com/

PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL to people you know in the area. The more people that express their opinion, the better. We would like for everyone to be heard, and their opinions represented.

Your answers will be kept confidential, only non-personalized results will be released.

Background

Sunrise Retirement is proposing to amend the City's "General Plan" to change the definition of "Public Institutional Zone" so that they can build an independent living facility on the old Westlake Hospital site. Westlake Village's City Council has the ability to vote for or against this change.

The Sunrise proposal is for 210+ units (170 of which are independent living apartments starting at a cost of about $4000/mo. including utilities, other services at additional cost). This is different from a nursing home, or assisted living. Features include such things as dining, library, multi-purpose room, exercise areas, spa, massage therapy, transportation services and more are part of the proposal.

Because the property is zoned the unusual "Public Institutional" zoning type, the City can vote to leave the zoning definition as is (which would not allow for the Sunrise development). While no development can move forward without the consent of the current owners (HCA/Los Robles Hospital), many have made the suggestion that the city investigate options such as Community Center, Park, Pool, Dog Park, Garden, Museum ... or just leave for future development.
