We/You are not alone. The 9A scenario I mentioned this week and earlier -- Bigfoot comes to town on a manic mission, stomps on 200+ people, laughs when other city agencies and residents tell it to go away -- turns out not to be unique to Echo Park. A Granada Hills reader reports similar LAUSD practices, namely the disregard for legal process that led a judge to rule in favor of the Right Site Coalition of Echo Park on Monday. Richard Fisk wrote to me yesterday:
We are virtually in the same position with LAUSD except we have not "won". The demolition of a hospital building is scheduled to start in 2 weeks [to make] room for an unneeded high school. We have the info on: flawed EIR, violations of the Brown Act and CEQA process and most importantly demographics clearly showing that this $100 million school is being built in the wrong place.
Fisk also mentioned "an inadequate and untimely response from LAUSD to the California Public Records Act that we requested."
