Pop the Champagne! After an extended, protracted and strung out (not to mention lengthy) approvals process, we received our final development permit for a home in Calabasas, California (near L.A.). We garnered unanimous approvals from the Planning Department, Architectural Review Committee, Planning Commission and City Council, without a single voice of opposition. Apparently this is a first for this community. If you are interested in the process, check it out here:
Watch the Planning Commission Hearing (starts at 0:29:45, I speak at 1:27:40, accolades start at 1:33:40 🙂 )
Watch the City Council Hearing (starts at 2:05:55)
The next step is to obtain the construction permit. If all goes smoothly, the new year will echo with the sound of shovels breaking ground. My thanks to the team for your heroic efforts!
