Concerned citizens want stricter limits on underground construction
Amid a post-recession construction boom in Bel-Air, Calif., architects are building large homes with subterranean wine cellars and bowling alleys. These projects are altering slopes and ridgelines and some residents are concerned that the work could destabilize the hillsides in the Los Angeles neighborhood. "No one is protecting our community," Fred Rosen, former chief executive of Ticketmaster and co-founder of the Bel-Air Homeowners Alliance told the Los Angeles Times. The homeowners group wants the city of Los Angeles to impose stricter limits on construction.
