Los Angeles City Council Unanimously Approves Archer Forward

On August 4, 2015, Archer Forward received a unanimous vote of approval from the Los Angeles City Council.
Hearings had previously been held by the Hearing Officer, City Planning Commission and PLUM Committee of the City Council prior to this fourth and final meeting in the public stakeholder process that Archer began four years ago.

The vote was a result of the ongoing leadership of Councilmember Mike Bonin’s office, tremendous effort by our entire community, and the participation of the Brentwood Homeowners Association and the Residential Neighbors of Archer, both of whom withdrew their opposition to the project. This compromise serves as a model for how schools and neighborhoods can work together.
