Hollywood Drive to traffic as part of a three-week trial period to ease congestion for tourists seeking close-up views of the Hollywood sign.

Weiss Resigns from Chatsworth Neighborhood Council

CHATSWORTH PATCH - Justin Weiss resigned Wednesday from the board of the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council.
 
Weiss, who joined the board following a special election in October 2010, cited time constraints as his reason for resigning. He has been a community organizer at California State University, Northridge. Now he is a Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology and has a growing family.
 
Board President Andre van der Valk said that at the December meeting at Lawrence Middle School the board would discuss scheduling a special election to replace Weiss.
