This property is NOT zoned for a industrial sized project and cannot be approved without a CUP Conditional Use Permit. Councilmember Raman CAN save Weddington.                                                 

She must approve the CUP for it to be granted.  Now she needs to hear from YOU. Email Councilmember Raman and tell her how you feel.

Harvard Westlake LOST their huge project on Coldwater Canyon because the community showed up
in opposition. The Coldwater Community WON and Harvard Westlake LOST! WE CAN DO THE SAME!

A more detailed look at Harvard-Westlake’s plans

Their humongous Sportzilla doesn’t even fit on the Weddington property. The track on Field B spills over the property line and encroaches on publicly owned county property. Without a “sweetheart” deal to lease tax payer owned property they can’t build Field B,  the track around it or the Bus Shuttle loop. The meager offer of a “park” is part of a land grab of publicly owned County property that we already have access to as a nature park path called the Zev Yaroslavsky Greenway.

  • Hundreds of trees lost

  • Surrounded by 10-12ft solid walls
  • Artificial grass fields create heat islands
  • Late night noise and light pollution
  • 3 years of construction 6 days a week

CityWatch: "Multi-million Dollar Sports Complex Threatens Community Green Open Space"

by Adele Slaughter

“Harvard-Westlake insists it needs to install artificial turf fields and an ADA ramp to connect the river walk with their campus. This will disturb and disrupt that vital habitat along the LA River, devastating the wildlife. Once installed, artificial turf sheds microplastics and PFAS/PFOS (forever chemicals). Artificial turf creates heat islands, increasing temperatures in the surrounding neighborhoods…”

“The move reflects growing concern over health effects of PFAS, which have contaminated water supplies in hundreds of communities…”

Our mission: STOP Harvard-Westlake from destroying Weddington Golf & Tennis

Harvard-Westlake plans to destroy the beloved “Gem of Studio City ” by leveling the entire 16 acres and replacing it with a private sports complex.

We feel that their project is neither unique or essential to this particular piece of property and could be built elsewhere on property zoned for huge developments of this kind. There is no reason for this enormous collection of concrete, glass, and plastic fields to take the place of this beloved open space landmark.

What makes Weddington Golf & Tennis so special

This property is open to the public, no club fees, no restrictions and is enjoyed by over 100,000 Angelenos every year. People from all backgrounds, and walks of life can enjoy a relaxing day on the course or courts or work on their swing at the range. The green space and mature trees provide a breath of fresh air in our beautiful but crowded cityscape. We believe that the proposed demolition of this post WWII era recreational facility will result in a significant loss to the heritage of Studio City.
