A California Superior Court issued a tentative decision in three related cases challenging the Hollywood Community Plan Update (HCPU), which would, among other things, increase density near public transit stops. If issued as a final decision, the court’s ruling would invalidate the HCPU. The court found that the environmental impact report prepared under the California Environmental Quality Act was flawed, including its outdated assumptions regarding population and its inadequate consideration of alternatives. The City issued a letter on December 20 acknowledging the uncertainty created by the tentative decision and indicating that it remained committed to the principles of the HCPU.
