LOS ANGELES-Los Angeles Superior Court judge Alan Goodman has ruled against Hollywood’s Community Plan update in a tentative court ruling this month. The judge deemed the plan to be “fundamentally flawed,” specifically due to the use of 2005 population estimates from the Southern California Association of Government rather than 2010 US Census Bureau information, which would have served better to prove the submarket had sufficient infrastructure to accommodate the growth.

Originally presented in 2012, the Community Plan update included zone changes and amendments that would help drive development in the Hollywood submarket. As a result of the ruling, the city will not be authorized to grant entitlements related to the update.
