Do you have a question about Studio City? How do you get that tree stump removed? When will those pipes be fixed? Community activist Lisa Sarkin is answering questions about the history, government and problems in our area in this column. She often knows who to call, and where to go to get things done. Send your questions to or leave it in the COMMENTS section below. Thanks!
Of the Park Motel . . .
I have lived in Studio City for eight years and for all that time the on Ventura Boulevard near Coldwater has been closed...never any cars in the lot... Is there a story behind that property? It seems to be pretty well maintained just empty...just curious.
Thanks, Michael Hirshenson
Michael - thank you for your question. I have attempted to contact the owner of the Park Motel without success. I will continue to try and get some information about it and let you know what I find out.
Of the Marijuana Dispensaries . . .
Many of you have asked about the number of marijuana dispensaries in Studio City so I have waited as long as I can to be able to give you the most up-to-date information available. Currently, I know of nine dispensaries on Ventura Boulevard. I have not found any other dispensaries in Studio City to date. The dispensary ordinance passed last year is on hold because of numerous lawsuits.
