The proposed housing/commercial development at the Pillarhenge site in Eagle Rock was approved on Jan. 11 at a meeting of the City Planning Commission. At the meeting, the developer accepted additional conditions asked for by José Huizar, Eagle Rock’s City Councilmember for metered parking and additional lighting along Colorado Blvd. and a U-turn going west on Colorado at Mt. Helena. The Commission required the developer to schedule regular service of the building’s filtration system. Two of the 26 planned apartments will be for very-low income tenants.

Amid an FBI investigation, Huizar has been stripped of power at City Hall and has disappeared from community gatherings. “He’s toxic,” says one former councilman. - Photo: Genaro Molina/Los Angeles Times
