    UPDATE: 1030 N Sierra Bonita Gets ‘Order to Demolish’ After Fire Safety Concerns

    A West Hollywood City Hall representative has provided on update on the various actions that the City of West Hollywood has taken since WeHo Times reported a massive fire at an abandoned house at 1030 N Sierra Bonita Ave, on Thanksgiving night.

    The fire destroyed portions of both the front house the back structure in the property, as well a neighboring apartment. Block by Block security ambassadors were stationed at the empty house after local residents complained that the property was getting trespassers afte and using the space as an alleged drug den.

    In response to safety concerns, the city of West Hollywood has taken the following steps to secure the property:

    • The City of West Hollywood issued a “Notice and Order to Demolish Unsafe Structures” to the property owner. The Notice and Order also includes that the owner immediately provide 24/7 on-site security.
    • The City of West Hollywood confirmed that the property owner secured private security on-site 24/7. As a result, the City of West Hollywood’s security services have been removed. City of West Hollywood staff will be checking the property at different times to ensure security is being maintained. If the property owner fails to comply with providing on-site security at any time, the City of West Hollywood will do so through its Block-by-Block services.
    • The property owner is required to obtain a demolition permit from the City of West Hollywood authorizing the demolition of the unsafe structures and complete the demolition by January 5, 2024.
    • Additionally, if the owner does not comply with the issued Notice and Order, the City of West Hollywood will pursue a nuisance abatement on the property. This is a legal process that allows the City of West Hollywood to access private property and perform the work needed to bring the property into compliance.
    • The City of West Hollywood will have a tentative goal of completing all work on the property if a nuisance abatement process is initiated by February 5, 2024. This date is tentative and could be extended should the property owner legally contest the action the City of West Hollywood would be taking under a nuisance abatement.
    • The City of West Hollywood’s Community Services Department is keeping community members/area neighbors apprised with as much information as is possible as this process unfolds.

    It is about time West Hollywood city government stepped up and do something about these vacant properties.Because of the homeless problem,there is an urgency to keep these unoccupied properties secure.

    The city bureaucracy acted as if there were no way these issues could be addressed when there are many municipal tools and laws at their disposal.Either West Hollywood city bureaucracy is lazy or they are afraid to apply the law.Unfortunately,it took a fire to get them off their duffs.The city can count their lucky stars no one was killed in this blaze.
