Join Times reporters Rosanna Xia and Rong-Gong Lin II for an important discussion about the Hollywood fault on Thursday morning's L.A. Now Live chat at 9 a.m.

Xia, Lin and Times staff writer Doug Smith have been researching the fault and found that at least two developments were approved by city officials without requiring a detailed fault investigation.

"The community activists who appealed ... said it's troubling that the city didn't require any detailed earthquake fault studies," they wrote.
