Today we learned that Hollywood is open for business. State geologists confirmed what we already knew: a fault line runs along the Hollywood Hills, trace lines might extend into the business district, and that any project proposed near these areas must conduct extensive testing to determine the exact location of a trace line in relation to the proposed construction.
The City is in the process of updating Navigate LA to reflect the Earthquake Fault Zone Map to insure any construction is rigorously reviewed and safe. The City of Los Angeles will continue to have the most restrictive regulations when it comes to building in earthquake zones. This information provides a clear map for development in the heart of Hollywood.
