9.  PLUM Committee
      A. Discussion and possible motion pertaining to Recirculated Draft EIR and updated Mobility Plan, which is expected to go before the City Planning Commission in May. Plan would create protected bike lanes along major N/S and E/W corridors across City and Hollywood and eliminate current Board of Engineering requirements for street widening in many places.  Motion to seek exemption for Hollywood from 2035 Mobility Plan as the City is in the process of redoing our Community Plan and any discussion about transportation and land use should take place as part of this this larger discussion. Submittal of a CIS to this effect.
      B.  2121- 2127 N. Vine Street: The below requests for variances are approved for the following reasons:
           1. There is no change in the footprint of the structure.
