Foes of museum expansion file suit

July 18, 2009|Martha Groves

Opponents of the Museum of Tolerance's planned expansion have filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court in an effort to force the city to reverse its approval of the project.

In June, the City Council approved the expansion to accommodate private functions that could serve hundreds of people. The plan would allow the museum to hold as many as 18 events per month.

The complaint, filed Thursday, alleged that the approval rescinded the protections of an existing conditional use permit under which the museum has operated.

Neighbors say they generally applaud the museum's mission but contend that the added activities would create crowds, traffic and noise.
