  • They control the majority vote on the West Hollywood City Council.
  • The “Townscape Three” have taken thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the developers, Townscape/Angelo, Gordon, directly or through Duran’s “Friends of West Hollywood.”

West Hollywood councilwoman Lindsay Horvath (the "Townscape Three") tells Havenhurst residents that there is no guarantee that a cul-de-sac or bollards will happen and won't reassure residents that thousands of diesel trucks will not use the residential street which could cause major health problems. She still will not admit taking thousands of dollars in campaign funds from John Duran backed Friends of West Hollywood (Townscape/ Angelo, Gordon were major contributors).
Dec. 3 – West Hollywood Councilwoman Lindsay Horvath (the “Townscape Three”) tells Havenhurst residents that there is no guarantee that a cul-de-sac or bollards will happen and won’t reassure residents that thousands of diesel trucks will not use the residential street which could cause major health problems.
  • Councilwoman Horvath, in a recent meeting with Havenhurst Drive residents, claimed that the bollards or cul-de-sac are not even guaranteed for the residential street.
  • She revealed that the “Townscape Three” had received many complaints about Havenhurst being closed but would not elaborate.
  • Horvath encouraged Havenhurst residents to attend WEHO City Council meetings when there is a citywide hearing to decide if the bollards or a cul-de-sac on the residential street will happen.
  • The majority of the council, the “Townscape Three,” will then make that decision.
  • She said that West Hollywood went an outside council because the City Attorney had so many conflicts of interest. She refused to state what they were.
  • When confronted with the fact many people who might protest in WEHO City Council Meetings against the cul-de-sac would be placed there by Townscape, who used a woman living in Minnesota to run the Los Angeles City protests, Horvath actually claimed she could tell the difference between West Hollywood residents and those who are not.
Horvath has been satirized for using WEHO as a steeping stone for higher office.

  • Horvath wouldn’t address the issue that many residents living in WEHO Housing Havenhurst Apartments, suffering from major health problems, would suffer from the diesel fumes created by the 8150 Sunset proposed truck delivery entrance.
  • Horvath would not elaborate on why the “Townscape Three,” who control the majority on the WEHO City Council, were not objecting to the 8150 Sunset project
  • She could not clarify why the City of West Hollywood had not done a traffic report on the impact 8150 Sunset development would have on West Hollywood.
  • Horvath did everything to dump all the 8150 Sunset problems on Mayor Lauren Meister.
  • (The only two honest people on the West Hollywood City Council seem to be Mayor Meister and John D’Amico.)
Councilman John Duran (Townscape Three) ran Friends of West Hollywood (with large contributions from Townscape) that contributed to Horvath's election.

  • When confronted with why the “Townscape Three” are demanding that no stipulation in the West Hollywood/Townscape agreement be required that the location of the Havenhurst Drive bollards or cul-de-sac be on the Los Angeles/West Hollywood city line or above, Horvath seemed irritated at the question.
  • Horvath stated that any decision made by the “Townscape Three” regarding this are privileged communications and not to be shared with West Hollywood citizens.
  • When challenged on this, the Councilwoman said to file a complaint with the WEHO City Government.
  • She seemed “clueless” not realizing that citizens could file a complaint with the FBI against “pay to play” corruption in West Hollywood.
Horvath wanted to bar Donald Trump from West Hollywood not realizing that Angelo, Gordon, the New York money behind Townscape, were supporting the president-elect who was an investor in the hedge-fund. Townscape gave major money to get the "Townscape Three" elected including Horvath through Duran's Frineds of West Hollywood.

  • Donald Trump, Horvath’s “grandstanding” adversary, is a major investor in Angelo, Gordon, the hedge fund group putting up the money for 8150 Sunset and under the “Townscape” brand.
  • But Trump would have never approved of  Frank Gehry as architect for 8150 Sunset since the president-elect been reported to comment on how the architect’s buildings have caused major structural problems including endless leaks and flooding as experienced with the MIT buildings, resulting in a lawsuit against Gehry.

Does the "Townscape Three" serve the developers or the citizens of West Hollywood?

  • It is obvious Townscape wants the bollards or cul-de-sac below where the current exit driveway is now located in the above image and is counting on the “Townscape Three” to make that happen.

  1. In 2015 Townscape donated tens of thousands of dollars to an independent expenditure campaign to support the election of John Heilman and Lindsay Horvath. That “independent” campaign was run by Council member John Duran who solicited the cash from developers. Like the “confidential” Ian Owens settlement, the City Attorney is doing his best to cover up this dirty business from the public view.

  2. West Hollywood is second to LA as the most corrupt city in the USA. Love that they are the “Townscape Three” – what a pathetic greedy little group… embarrassed to be gay knowing my city is run by these creeps. Love that the city council is backing this all white guy group. As for Horvath, she can tell when people don;t live in west hollywood because they aren;t white like she is… because who could afford to live here with the townscape asshles selling us out.

  3. Gehry’s design looks like three dildos with marshmallow sauce dumped on them. When will that old fucking asshole retire?

  4. I was there with the group on havenhurst. Horvath gave sort of a pitch and then really couldn’t answer the questions. Fact that they made a deal with townscape and only asked for 2 ,million shows the total incompetence of the city government. West Hollywood it’s just about selling real estate and development. What’s worse is I went to the city council meeting and listened to the creepy Duran blab and blab and blab the gods help us with these morons running the city

  5. These three. What a joke. Trump will be in office a week from today. Duran should be on the top of his list… for the FBI to investigate.

  6. Duran has to be the worst thing that ever happened to West Hollywood. Talk about a political hack. He is the leader of the pack. Vote him out. Along with Heilaman.

  7. The City of West Hollywood and the WeHo City Council were bought off by Townscape via their Beverly Blvd. development. The project sits just outside West Hollywood s northern board with the City of Los Angeles but WEHO if they haven’t sold out to the developers, control sewage and traffic access to WEHO. To close off Havenhurst to the New York backed Townscape is a pain in the ass for Frank Gehry.
