A string of controversial meetings of the Planning Commission that culminated with Commissioner Joe Shooshani personally confronting resident Debbie Weiss has led Ronald Richards, president of the Beverly Hills Hillside Protection Association (BHHPA), to send a letter to the City “requesting the removal of Planning Commissioner Farshid Joe Shooshani.”
“There are facts that make Commissioner Shooshani’s removal necessary to maintain the integrity of the Planning Commission,” wrote Richards, who lists nine reasons why he should be removed, including a lawsuit arising out of an encroachment permit he took out at his West Hollywood building. The case involves an oversized JLG lift parked on the street in front of Shooshani’s Sunset Boulevard property with an expired permit, that was being used to change a jumbotron sign. The Plaintiffs are the family of a motorist killed in an early morning collision with the lift.
