For a brief moment in the Los Angeles City Council redistricting effort, all the borders of Studio City were in one district—the first time in more than a decade.
That odd box over by Fulton and Coldwater Canyon that fell into Paul Koretz's district on the west end of Studio City was now in the new Council District 2. The historic Campo de Cahuenga, the Metro station for which the "Studio City" name is sought", and both ends of Weddington Park were all in the same compact district.
