Brookside resident Julie Stromberg had long been willing to fill a city post, and then the mayor called.

“All of a sudden I got this call. They were looking for someone for the Central Area Planning Commission (CAPC) who had strong ties to the community, and they thought I was a good fit,” Stromberg told us.

The commission serves as an appeals board for projects reviewed by the City Planning Department. The appointment is for two years.

“We can’t just willy-nilly overturn the zoning administrator’s decision. We look at all factors, including community input and the location of the project,” Stromberg explained.

The CAPC is one of seven regional panels that review development projects in different regions of Los Angeles. The CAPC handles appeals of projects in the area from the Beverly Hills and West Hollywood city borders to Griffith Park and Downtown Los Angeles.

Stromberg, a lawyer and longtime area resident, was elected to the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council in 2014 and has served as chair of several of the council’s committees, including Land Use, Transportation, Sustainability and Neighborhood Purpose Grants.

In 2015, she chaired the renovation for Harold Henry Park in Windsor Village, where she and her family lived at the time. Stromberg told us she had hoped for an appointment to a volunteer seat on either the city commission for recreation and parks or animal services, both passions of hers.

But the Central Area Planning Commission was high on her list as well.

Her legal practice focuses on special education, and Stromberg is opening her own office on Larchmont Boulevard at the beginning of the year.

A mom to three kids (and three dogs), she is married to attorney Winston Stromberg.

She also was a 2015 Larchmont Chronicle Woman of Larchmont.

The CAPC meets in-person at City Hall on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. For more information, visit
