An L.A. County-owned property in unincorporated Willowbrook is slated for redevelopment, according to a motion introduced by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas

The approximately 7,200-square-foot parcel, located at 11909 Willowbrook Avenue, has been owned by the County's Community Development Commission (CDC) since 1982.  The CDC has proposed entering into an exclusive negotiating agreement with the nonprofit organization Restore Neighborhoods LA for the potential development of the site, which would be reserved for extremely low-income individuals or those who have experienced homelessness.

The motion is up for consideration at Wednesday's meeting of the Board of Supervisors.  If adopted, the negotiating period would last for an initial term of six months, with the possibility of a four-month extension.

Several other County-owned sites in Willowbrook have also been made available for the development of affordable and permanent supportive housing within the past two years.

Other ongoing projects in the community include an ongoing upgrade of the busy, but beleaguered, Willowbrook Metro station, which serves passengers on both the Blue and Green Lines. 

The County is also in the process of creating a new specific plan to govern land use in the Willowbrook neighborhood.
