Councilman Tom LaBonge has introduced a motion to restrict the number of house parties in the Hollywood Hills and other “Mountain Fire District Areas” to combat the traffic problems some of these events cause, impairing firetrucks and other emergency vehicles from moving freely through nearby roads.
“We have numerous examples of abusive party planners whose sole purpose is to maintain a residence for the express purpose of renting it out to make money,” said Councilmember Tom LaBonge. “It is one thing to host a social function, it’s quite another when that function overwhelms the street with cars, noise and crowds.”
LaBonge hopes that this action will
frighten encourage “party planners” to arrange for shuttle service and off site parking.
