It was most distressing to be misquoted in the article on Center West (Feb. 7).
The reference to having to "battle local homeowners, an ambiguous councilman and a host of architectural preservationists. . . ." can only be attributed to the reporter, not me.
Throughout the planning and approval process, our viewpoints were given courteous and reasoned consideration by both Councilman (Zev) Yaroslavsky and the Friends of Westwood. What Center West really symbolizes--how a developer and the community can work together--is unhappily distorted by this erroneous reporting.
