T-Mobile moving on; Countrywide tenants staying

A pair of communications from CD-13 delivered good news. T-Mobile is giving up its evil plan to put cell towers on the top of the Del Mor Apartments on Echo Park Ave. And Countrywide is abandoning its evil plan to toss out tenants of a foreclosed three-plex on Scott Ave.

Julie Wong, Eric Garcetti's press person, emailed:

Just thought you might want to know that all of the tenants in the triplex on Scott Ave. (where the building was foreclosed and the renters were pressured to leave) have been contacted by the agent working on behalf of Countrywide. In all cases, the evictions have been canceled and the cash for keys offers were rescinded.

As for the towers, CD-13 posted on a neighborhood list:

A T-Mobile representative just contacted our office to inform us that they have submitted a letter to the Planning Department to pull the proposed project scheduled for 1551 Echo Park Avenue. The T-Mobile representative did not provide specific reasons as to why the project was pulled, but they wanted to inform the Council Office of their decision. If you have any questions, please contact Albina Ferreyra at (323) 957-4500.

Got any evil plans you were hoping to dispose of? A drop box will be set up at the Magic Gas intersection, 24-hour access, no questions asked.
