BEVERLY HILLS─The cities of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood are in discussions to determine a shared approach to the current uses at the ‘Log Cabin’ property, located at 621 N. Robertson Boulevard.
The property is located in West Hollywood, but owned by the city of Beverly Hills. According a press release Canyon News received from Keith Sterling from the city of Beverly Hills, after a recent audit of its property inventory, the city discovered there is no lease in place with the building’s current tenant, the Lions Club. A contractor who recently visited the property found portions of the building under poor condition. The property has been used as a gathering location for recovery meetings.
“Tens of thousands of people have been helped by the 12-step meetings at the Log Cabin on N. Robertson Boulevard over the past four decades; these meetings are a vital resource for the West Hollywood and greater Los Angeles sober community,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “The City of West Hollywood is committed to preserving the availability of addiction recovery support group space and will work with our neighbors in the City of Beverly Hills to explore all available options.”
“We are committed to continued availability of services. This space serves a significant and valuable role for the recovery community and we will examine all potential options,” said West Hollywood City Manager Paul Arevalo.
“Both cities recognize the important work that has occurred at the site and the countless lives that have been changed for the better,” said Beverly Hills City Manager George Chavez. “Our concern is the safety of those within the building.”
West Hollywood is anticipated to conduct its own audit of the building’s conditions in the coming days. The city of Beverly Hills has offered to provide alternative meeting locations for the Lions Club and other organizations using the facility. West Hollywood is exploring options that support the ongoing use and the availability of community and recovery meetings. Both the city of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills will deliver updates as talks continue.
