LAST CHANCE TO SIGN THE PETITION!!!
We the undersigned favor halting the development of the massive new Anita May Rosenstein Campus until which time neighbors of the facility have had sufficient time to assess and comment on its impact on their community.
As part of a major expansion scheduled to break ground in 2016, the Los Angeles LGBT Center has plans for a mixed-use development that will provide housing for at-risk youth and seniors, as well as for the creation of a new facility providing health-related services. Located between Las Palmas & McCadden, and Santa Monica Blvd & Lexington, this enormous new project has yet to be sufficiently evaluated such that residents, businesses, and others within its immediate vicinity might be able to understand its potential impact in terms of crime, vagrancy, and quality of life issues.
Until which time those supporting the construction of the new Anita May Rosenstein Campus can demonstrate a sincere willingness and an ability to address, with concrete solutions, the issues of crime and vagrancy surrounding the current LGBT Youth Center, no further planning of a new, much larger facility should go forth. (Efforts over the past year to work with the Youth Center to resolve such matters have met with extremely limited success).
In addition, the imposition of this demographically seismic adjustment to our neighborhood stands in direct opposition to sound urban planning practices. While we ultimately support the goals of the Anita May Rosenstein Center, those spearheading its introduction into our neighborhood have demonstrated an appalling lack of consideration for those living in its shadow.
Whatever good this center is intended to accomplish, the end does not justify the means.

WERE YOU EVER INFORMED ABOUT THIS HUGE PROJECT GOING UP IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
TAKE THIS QUICK 4-QUESTION SURVEY...
At an earlier public hearing for the Anita May Rosenstein project, a member of our community pointed out something rather unsettling…
Directors of the Youth Center have previously defended themselves by claiming the youth allegedly committing the crimes we’re experiencing are not their youth, but instead, are the prostitutes, drug dealers, and transients whom already reside in the area and have been (famously) for over a decade.
If they’re acknowledging that this area they speak of, the very same area where their current Youth Center resides, and the build site for the proposed new center, then why would they want to remain in the same area?
It's critically irresponsible for them to knowingly want to put a center for at risk Youth in an area that has a history of prostitution, drugs, and other disastrous influential factors that these youth will be objectified to on a daily and nightly basis.
How will that help these "at-risk youth" in their quest to improve their current situation?
Did you know this proposed development includes plans to remove several existing street parking spots and narrow mccadden between Lexington and santa monica blvd?
