  • Jamie T. Hall of Channel Law Group represented a group of residents before the West LA Area Planning Commission on May 6, 2015. The residents had appealed the issuance of a Lot Line Adjustment for 10220 Scenario Lane on the grounds that the City did not conduct the required environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act. 
     

In a rare victory, the commissioners decided to uphold the appeal and withdrew the Lot Line Adjustment. The developer was represented by noted land use attorney Ben Reznik.

 

Staff stated at the hearing that granting the residents' appeal would be the first time in their memory that this had been done. The commissioners retorted by saying that “ perhaps it’s time this was addressed.”
