L. Ron Hubbard Street have had enough with the
Scientology and they have begun to voice their frustrations to the West Los Angeles City Council.For years, security guards for the
Scientology, located on 4810 Sunset Blvd., have blocked off the entrance to
L. Ron Hubbard Street preventing residents from getting to their homes on the weekends.This has been occurring for close to nine years in the area, as the
Scientology holds its weekly graduation ceremonies.
In a YouTube video, resident Samantha Franklin voiced her frustrations with the organization during a West L.A. City Council meeting on Wednesday, September 17, 2008.“The music is blared at the highest decibel, past midnight,” she said.The streets are usually blocked beginning Friday mornings at 6:00 a.m. to Sunday nights at 11:00 p.m.Residents indicated that they never received notice or signed a petition.“The situation is truly compromising our standard of living,” said Samantha Franklin.
Edie Reuveni, of the
Los Angeles, indicated to KCAL 9 news reporter Kirk Hawkins that “this is not just about the church.We are here for the community and we are here for our neighbors and if there’s a situation, believe me we will work it out.”
The issue is expected to be addressed in the coming weeks by City Council member Eric Garcetti.
