Below is a copy of an alert sent by The Sherman Oaks Homeowners Association to its more than 3,000 members urging them to contact City Councilman Paul Krekorian and the Los Angeles City Planning Department about the 500-unit apartment complex proposed for the corner of Sepulveda Boulevard and Camarillo Street.
The project, proposed by developer M. David Paul, would create an Italian village motif with apartments and retail shops on land just north of the Sherman Oaks Galleria.
The proposal has gone through a number of steps, including an environmental impact report, and various public hearings. On Thursday, the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council's Land Use Committee will hear arguments from both sides of the issue.
To accommodate the large crowd expected for the hearing, it will be held at the Sherman Oaks/East Valley Senior Center at 5520 Van Nuys Boulevard.

DOWNSIZE THE MASSIVE 8-STORY,
500 UNIT APARTMENT COMPLEX
AT SEPULVEDA & CAMARILLO
HELP STOP MASSIVE NEW TRAFFIC IMPACTS ON VENTURA BLVD., SEPULVEDA BLVD. AND LOCAL STREETS
Il Villaggio Toscano* is a massive new development project that is proposed for the corner of Sepulveda Blvd. and Camarillo. This development will add thousands of new car trips per day to this already gridlocked intersection. Community groups, residents, and others across the Valley are contacting Councilman Paul Krekorian and the Los Angeles Department of City Planning to voice their opposition to the project as currently proposed, and to request that the project be downsized to a level at which the traffic impact can be mitigated.
*Il Villaggio Toscano is sometimes spelled, Il Villagio Toscano
This project will be a disaster for commuters traveling the 405/101 freeways, Ventura Blvd. and Sepulveda Blvd.
