The Initiative doesn't stop the developments everyone wants to stop
It's basically dropping a mini-neighborhood into an old school neighborhood.
Hermes doesn't have sidewalks, it's got a rural feel. Most of the homes on Hermes are single family, maybe a granny flat, with a large yard.
Lots of weeds, lazy dogs sleeping under scrawny citrus trees, and the occasional car that hasn't been started in 20 years.
A classic Keep Leucadia Funky neighborhood.
Everyone on Hermes hates this new development, but the Initiative doesn't block these from happening.
It's under 30' and it's not an upzone.
The developer probably squeezed 2 extra units into it using the state affordable housing mandate.
So, if Leucadians really want to stop these kind of developments what would that piece of legislation look like?
