Statement Regarding Yesterday's Court of Appeal Ruling on the Via Panorama Property

Post Date:01/31/2018 10:00 AM

“Yesterday afternoon the City learned that the Court of Appeal ruled in favor of the City’s position in the appeal involving the Via Panorama property.  

The City appealed for two reasons: first, to protect our parklands and our local control of the parklands; second, to protect our taxpayer dollars from the award of legal fees based on what the City believed to be an incorrect legal decision.  The City’s position was upheld on both points.  The Court of Appeal ruled that it was inappropriate to grant the Plaintiffs special power over all of our parklands.  The Court of Appeal also reversed the attorney fee award against the City. 

The City’s intention, throughout this process, has been to protect the open space and neighborhood character that our residents hold dear.  We intend to move forward from this point, working positively and proactively with our residents, to preserve and protect the parklands and quality of life we all enjoy in Palos Verdes Estates.”

--- Mayor James Vandever, City of Palos Verdes Estates
