West Hollywood Patch News Feed:
Welcome to your Neighborhood Association!
The WeHo Heights NA was formed by merging the former Shoreham Heights NA -
comprising the streets Horn, Sherbourne and Shoreham, with the unaffiliated nearby
streets of Larrabee, Clark and Ozeta Terrace, during the first neighborhood
meeting since the city of West Hollywood was incorporated in 1984, held at Horn
Plaza on June 11, 2007.For Hollywood
History of neighborhood,click here.
Our Neighborhood - WeHo Heights NA represents 1,003 residences on the only streets
north of Sunset in West Hollywood. The
primary issues facing the neighborhood are parking, traffic and
over-development. On a recent survey, over 50% of the respondents have
lived in WeHoHeights for over ten years, with half of
them residents of the neighborhood over twenty years.
Our Goal -
To maintain and preserve the quality of life in our little pocket of West Hollywood, and to create continued awareness of this
area in front of the leaders of our City as they make decisions that impact
this extremely dense hillside residential neighborhood.
Pending WeHoHeights Construction

2010 - WeHo Heights NA filed appeal against project requesting 35' height limit
(per area zoning) and to provide two guest parking spaces (per code).
July 2010 - City Council ruled against neighborhood in 4-1 vote (only
Councilmember Jeff Prang in support of neighborhood).These future condos
will have no guest parking, nor will they be able to obtain guest street
parking permits from City.Also, Affordable
Housing condos do not contribute to monthly dues and assessments. Would
