Linn Wyatt
Chief Zoning Administrator

Subject: The Stanley Hills Wildlife Corridor
Dear Ms Wyatt,
There is nothing UNclear about the Stanley Hills wildlife corridor condition
1. Why did you step in give special attention to Yossi Attia?
2. Why did you change the boundaries of this corridor with your special letter?  
After it was found that your special letter was in error,
3. Why did you change the planning commissions designations and protections behind closed doors?
4. Shouldn't you recuse yourself from this case?
I would like answers to these questions.
Thank you. 

Michael LoGrande
Planning Director, the City Of Los Angeles

Subject: The Stanley Hills Wildlife Corridor
Dear Mr LoGrande,
Chief zoning Administrator Lynn Wyatt's special letter was determined to be in error and did not provide for a functioning wildlife corridor. It was clear that she over-extended her assistance to the benefit of the developer, so:
1 - Why was she allowed to remain in charge of the case? 
2 - Why haven't you stepped in and used your leadership to protect this wildlife corridor and to ensure that your department follows proper protocol. 
3 - Why isn't your office responding and working shoulder-to-shoulder with environmental agencies like the SMMC.  
I would like you to answer these questions.
Thank you.

Tom LaBonge
Councilmember, Council District 4

Subject: The Stanley Hills Wildlife Corridor
Dear Mr LaBonge, 
We Know that Griffith Park is the crown-jewel of your Council District. The Laurel Canyon wildlife corridor is a part of that crown jewel's eco-connectivity. The Stanley Hills Development and this huge environmental loss is in your council district.  We are asking that you ensure that this stretch of the wildlife corridor is returned to the original SMMC recommendation of a 20 foot width.  It has currently been diminished to 10 foot minimums though stubborn opposition by developer Yossi Attia. Over the last 100 years the animal access at this Stanley Hills development site has been 150 feet wide and today the city has allowed it's reduction to 0 feet. We are asking for your support in rectifying this situation. 
Thank you.

Carmen Trutanich
City Attorney

Subject: The Stanley Hills Wildlife Corridor
Dear Mr Trutanich
You can clearly see the 2004 destruction of a 100 year old oak tree that is protected by law In our video. It was destroyed by the developer, Yossi Attia without a permit and went unpunished. In 2012 seven more protected trees were destroyed by Mr Attia without permits which are issued to ensure mitigations with bonding and replacement trees. Your office is aware of this. We not only want the bonding and mitigations ensured, we want these violations punished to the full extent of the law. 
Thank you
