Beverly Hills School District Fights Against Subway Plan

According to Curbed Los Angeles, the city of Beverly Hills and its school district are more committed than ever to fight the proposed Century City Purple Line station at Avenue of the Stars and Constellation, which would require tunneling under Beverly Hills High School.

The district and city claim that tunneling under the school violates the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). In their continued efforts to get the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the Beverly Hills School District has renewed its contract with a D.C. lobbying firm, Venable LLP; the firm is urging federal authorities to deny any final subway plans should they include the tunnel.

While the school district is fighting the project, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (L.A. Metro) continues its testing fieldwork in Beverly Hills, which has included continuous core drilling, according to the Beverly Hills Courier. Metro had taken a month off while the City Council reassessed their permits. The core drilling for the Beverly Hills subway project is expected to be conducted Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., through June 29.

Public projects, such as the Beverly Hills Subway, have the potential to cause loss of ground support for structures such as homes, businesses, and schools, and may even lead to a loss in property value. If your property has been seized or damaged because of a public project without an offer of adequate compensation, experienced California inverse condemnation attorney John S. Peterson, founder of Peterson Law Group, P.C., can help. Call today to find out more about your legal rights and options at (213) 236-9720.
