Japanese Garden saga continues

Blog readers will recall the conflict over the fate of the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden, once owned by UCLA. UCLA wanted to sell it, leading to a fight with the Carter family that argued that UCLA had agreed to preserve it in perpetuity. (Use the search engine on this blog to find back references to this conflict.) In the end, it was sold with a guarantee that the buyer and UCLA would preserve the garden for at least 30 years. Supporters of the garden are now seeking a certification of the garden as an historic cultural monument by the City of LA. There will be a hearing on this matter April 4th before the LA City Council PLUM (Planning and Land Use Management) Committee. You can read the (lengthy) documentation behind the request at the link below:
