Sherman Oaks, close to two major freeways, serves as a gateway to the San Fernando Valley. The community is perhaps best known as the home of the Sherman Oaks Galleria, considered by many to be the undisputed residence of the Valley Girl, a cultural label popularized by the song and 1983 movie of the same name. Two large shopping malls, and numerous smaller boutiques and plazas that line Ventura Boulevard, provide residents and visitors with endless window-shopping opportunities.

This letter is in response to Mr. Hal Baron's letter of March 7 opposing Zev Yaroslavsky's request to impose a moratorium on building permits in the Sherman Oaks area. Apparently Mr. Baron does not reside on Dickens Street between Sepulveda and Hazeltine, for, if he did, I believe that he would be thankful for an abatement of residential building in Sherman Oaks. I am a renter and have currently lived in Sherman Oaks for four months, so perhaps I am not qualified to comment on what is good for Sherman Oaks in the long run. As I work out of my apartment and therefore am at home during the day, I am qualified to say that living in an area where there are no fewer than six condominium developments in progress is very disruptive, noisy, congested and dirty and runs counter to Mr. Baron's theory of affordable housing.

The matter will go before the full council in the coming weeks. "It's been a long, long process, but an interesting one.
