The project that galvanized homeowners to fight back against overdevelopment and excavation in Bel-Air just received a green light from Los Angeles’ Department of Building and Safety Tuesday.
Despite the opposition of dozens of residents present in the chambers including attorneys Richard Zeilenga and James Vaughn for the Bel-Air Homeowners Alliance (BAHA), Shawn Bayless, Planning and Land Use Deputy for Los Angeles 11th District Paul Koretz, Leonard Nimoy, beloved star of Star Trek and Kristina Badaraite, attorney for the Bel-Air Association – L.A. Board of Building and Safety Commissioners approved the hauling for a massive project at 10697 Somma Way.
Developers who wish to excavate are only required to file for haul routes and grading permits; the LADBS hearing Tuesday was a request for inspection/grading by applicant Shannon Nonn to export 29,474-cubic yards of earth from the project site.
