There is a sixteenth potential site in the search to install a Los Angeles Department of Water and Power distribution station in Pacific Palisades, land use committee members learned Thursday.
Paul Glasgall, member of the DS-104 Task Force, reported that a parcel of less than an acre north of the mobile home park between the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway entered recent discussions of where to place to substation.
He said it's located near the 17000 block of Sunset Boulevard and has a partially flat to mostly steep slope. After Thursday's meeting, Glasgall said it is a problematic site and it has not been entered into any tiers of the remaining sites in the Palisades.
Since the original substation site list was announced in October 2012, residents attended a workshop at Pali High on Jan. 15 to learn of the project scope and hear about the top four ranked locations. More feedback is included in this video.
Neighbors near the top four sites questioned the task force's choices to the Pacific Palisades Community Council on Jan. 24.
Glasgall noted that this was only new proposal LADWP presented to the task force and could not comment if they have received any others since late January.
The task force is tentatively scheduled to meet later this month to continue discussions.
