ore than 6,000 jobs have been lost inHollywood over the past two years – not because of the Great Recession but because of lawsuits or the threat of law-suits. (See sidebar on next page)The stag-gering loss of jobs has led the HollywoodChamber of Commerce to call for reformof CEQA laws.“Virtually all major development inHollywood has ground to a halt,” saidChamber President & CEO Leron Gubler.“The sad thing is that thousands of peoplecould have been put to work if it had not been for these lawsuits or threats to sue. Andnow other developers are reconsideringdoing projects in the community becausethey are fearful of frivolous lawsuits.”Gubler said the problem is that evenwhen the lawsuits have no merit, thelengthy court process can kill a project because developers are unable to absorbthe carrying costs of the land while fightingoff the challenge.Perhaps the most visible Hollywoodexample of the problem is with the pro- posed Sunset-Gordon Project. In January,the California State Supreme Court reject-ed the final appeal from appellants, hand-ing the City and developers a hollow victo-ry. Unfortunately, it had taken two-and-ahalf years to complete the case, which wasoriginally filed in August 2008. The devel-opers were unable to hold on and lost the property late last year.

The 6,000 job that are claimed to have been lost are NOT sustainable jobs. Unfortunately, developers prefer to "bulldoze" and build without considering the affects on surrounding properties.Often, adjoining property owners are not given proper notification while developers claim building "by right" under current density bonus rules. CEQA gives the property owner the only recourse at this time.
