L.A. County Board of Supervisors Approves Short Term ENA with Developer for Expo/Crenshaw Station Joint Development
On January 9, 2018 , the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors (LA County Board) considered and approved a Short Term Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA) with developer Watt Companies for joint development of Metro and County-owned parcels at the Expo/Crenshaw Station . This completes a multi-agency approval required for Watt Companies to obtain a Short Term ENA and begin community outreach for the new development. Additional information may be found in the LA County Board Letter . Details on the proposed project and the evaluation process can be found in the full Metro Board Report .
The Short Term ENA provides Watt Companies an interim period before executing a full term ENA during which community outreach on the proposed project can occur, and the developer can further refine the project scope, including identifying additional opportunities with community-based organizations in the delivery and on-going operation of the project in furtherance of Metro’s Joint Development Policy and the Expo/Crenshaw Development Guidelines . Watt anticipates beginning community engagement by Spring 2018.
