AREA residential Association is celebrating 30 years.

Transportation, development and a new MMRA YouTube Channel will be on the agenda of the Miracle Mile Residential Association’s 30th annual meeting. The town-hall style event will be on Sat., Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Korean Cultural Center, 5505 Wilshire Blvd.

Residents will have a chance to voice their concerns about what is happening on their street. “I really want to expand the time for residents to let us know what’s going on in their part of the Miracle Mile,” said MMRA president Jim O’Sullivan.

Purple Line subway stations

Agenda topics include METRO’s recent request for work permit exemptions for Purple Line subway stations, and how it will impact the Mile.

The MMRA opposes the exemptions, O’Sullivan said, because of a lack of information about getting the word out regarding traffic closures for moving utility lines.


Also discussed will be the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures planned at the May Co. site and the J.H. Snyder 13-story office building project at Curson Ave.

An update on the Petersen Automotive Museum will include a recent denial of an appeal filed by the Association by the city Central Area Planning Commission. The MMRA opposes a new façade design underway for the Petersen. New options are being explored to protect the Miracle Mile Community Design Overlay District, approved by the City Council in 2004, said O’Sullivan.

Success of the group’s e-newsletter, whose readership has tripled since its launch early this year, and debut of a  MMRA YouTube Channel will round out the meeting.
