BACKGROUND
At the request of the property owner, the City Council previously
approved Final Map No. 22268 on February 9, 1993.  That airspace
subdivision map authorized conversion of the apartment
development to condominiums.  However, the property owner has
abandoned the condominium project and is requesting approval of
Parcel Map No. 24457 for the purpose of reversing the previously
approved and recorded subdivision map.  Approval of this request
will allow the City Engineer to release the performance bond and
improvement agreements for the abandoned condominium project. 

After a public hearing and careful review of the record and staff
recommendations, the Planning Commission approved Tentative
Parcel Map Mo. 24457 for the above project on March 6, 1996.  The
action of the Planning Commission was based on its findings that
the proposed reversion to acreage is in conformance with all
State and local laws and regulations and applicable General Plan
Elements.

The Final Map conforms to conditions of approval of the Tentative
Map.  The License Division reports that the City is not a lien
claimant.  The Final Map has been reviewed and  approved by the
Los Angeles County Engineer's office and certified by the City
Engineer for conformance with the Tentative Map and conditions
thereon, the Subdivision Map Act and local ordinances.

BUDGET/FISCAL IMPACT
The recommendation presented in this report does not have a bud-
get or fiscal impact.

RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Final Map be approved by adoption of
the accompanying resolution.
