Silver Lake residents met last night to further bolster an organized effort to fight a highly controversial mega-project proposed for Sunset Junction, a longtime and much-beloved community gathering spot. The group of more than 20 men and women was given a tutorial by Dr. Tom Williams about the ins and outs of an environmental impact report (EIR).

Silver Lake residents are concerned that the mega-project by developer Frost/Chaddock for Sunset Junction will destroy the character of their culturally important and historic community while also creating gridlock traffic. The developer wants to build three, large mixed-use buildings on three different sites along Sunset Boulevard.

Community activists have already formed the group Save Sunset Junction, and are gearing up to deliver comments on the project’s environmental impact report. On Tuesday night, Williams, an EIR expert, gave them tips about writing effective opposition letters. Save Sunset Junction members invite all Angelenos to join their cause.

The event, which was held at Akbar on Sunset Boulevard, was sponsored by the Coalition to Preserve L.A.
