SLT Co-founder Scott Plante Named Co-chair of Silver Lake's Urban Design and Preservation Committee

Updated: Apr 30


At last night’s Urban Design & Planning (UDP) Committee Meeting, voting members

elected Scott Plante co-chair. Plante, who is an architect and co-founder of the Silver Lake

Together advocacy team, will replace Liza Temple, who recently stepped down.

“I first became involved in UDP in 2011, when I wanted to do a creative lighting project on the Micheltorena steps to make it a special and safer place,” said Plante. “Unfortunately, the city would not allow the lighting, but I stayed involved. My goal is to improve the design quality of our neighborhood and maintain Silver Lake’s unique architectural character.”

Plante has a master’s degree in Design Research, Urban Design and City Planning, from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Maryland.


Recently, the SLNC attempted to change the membership of all Silver Lake Neighborhood Council committees from volunteers to only individuals appointed and approved by the governing board. Community members expressed strong concerns that the existing

committee structure and process would be compromised and the motion was not

approved.
