Height allowed now is 50 ft. This is a proposal to increase by 25 ft, total 75 ft. This

R5G, Prohibit suite-hotel in West Avenue neighborhood - WAvNA  SUPPORTS
Since 2004, 685 apartment units in our neighborhood have obtained a license to convert into a hotel or hotel-suite, thus displacing naturally occurring affordable housing for residents that live and work on the beach. In 2010, hotels were prohibited. This ordinance, sponsored by Commissioner Mark Samuelian upon recommendation by WAvNA, will grandfather in the existing 11 suit-hotels, but will prohibit any more.

R5R, New restrictions scooter rental - WAvNA SUPPORTS
This is a citywide proposal to reign n the proliferation of scooter rentals, which happen to be mostly used by tourists. Rental scooters park are being used as toys and "amusement park rides" that terrorize pedestrians and cause traffic accidents. Also, illegally on the street, thus limiting parking spaces for residents, especially residents that pay for parking permits.

R7H, Generators for pumps. 
Currently, city law requires new pump stations to include permanent generators. This proposal would instead have permanent pumps decided on a case by case basis.
