Los Angeles Paying Hollywood Community Plan Opponents $1.5 Million
"The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to pay $1.75 million for the legal fees of three groups that succeeded in striking down a new zoning and development plan for Hollywood," reports David Zahniser.
"On a 12-0 vote, council members agreed to pay the legal bills of the La Mirada Avenue Neighborhood Assn., Fix the City and SaveHollywood.org. The three groups had gone to court to halt implementation of the Hollywood Community Plan Update, a document that sought to bring larger-scale development to the area's transit corridors, among other things."
Now the city is going back to the drawing board and has tentatively scheduled a reworked version for 18 to 24 months from now.
