COUNCILMEMBER PAUL KORETZ – PROTECT US FROM BILLIONAIRE MICHAEL SCOTT’S GIGA-MANSION

I strongly oppose Michael Scott’s proposed 139,000 square foot giga-mansion at 10101 Angelo View Drive. Michael Scott, a billionaire mobile home park slumlord, who has a reputation for raucous parties, wants to build his enormous entertainment complex in our quiet hillside community. His proposed complex is bigger than the White House and Hearst Castle combined. This 85-foot tall, six story party palace will destroy our serene neighborhood.

I specifically oppose the Haul Route for the project, which allows the removal of more than 50,000 cubic yards of dirt. We don’t want tens of thousands of trucks, including 60,000 pound hauling and cement trucks, barreling down our streets as much as 100 times per day. We don’t want construction through 2023. Hauling away half a mountain down streets as narrow as 14 feet in width is potentially life-threatening. Even worse, Scott’s plan is to stop traffic on Benedict Canyon for up to 15 minutes per hour, for years, all because he refuses to use smaller trucks!

I oppose the fatally flawed and insufficient Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND). Michael Scott promised to do a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR) but that never happened. He’s trying to conceal the true impacts of the biggest hillside “house” ever proposed in Los Angeles. He hasn’t shared a single rendering and refused to meet with us. His proposed design, which we have learned looks like a flying saucer, will be a blight on our community. It’s out of scale, out of place and it doesn’t belong in our modest residential neighborhood. We don’t want a helipad, pools in excess of 500 feet in length, space for more than 1,000 partiers and Michael Scott’s personal night club, hotel, spa, and sports club in our neighborhood.

Councilmember Koretz, after successfully leading the charge for and exacting a promise from Michal Scott to perform a full EIR, I’m confused why you have not spoken up when he broke his promise to you and to our community. I’m unclear why you aren’t opposing the Haul Route, and I don’t know why you aren’t opposing this disastrous project as a whole. The loopholes he’s exploiting and the decimation of a wildlife corridor is prohibited under legislation and motions you authored. Those protections need to apply to our community and to this giga-mansion too.

We need you to protect our community by opposing Michael Scott’s entertainment complex with every means at your disposal. Stop him from using a loop hole to haul away half a mountain, from wiping out a wildlife corridor, from scaring our community for a generation.

This project violates everything you stand for and we need you to stand with your community to fight it!
