No Street Closure Permit Pulled for Closure
According to L.A. City Street Services Investigator Andrea Garcia, no permit was obtained to close Swarthmore Avenue from the alley to Monument Street today, Friday, October 5.
A Palisades Village guard was asked why the street was closed and he said there was a special event.
We later learned that it was a party (with music) for Caruso employees from various offices throughout Southern California who hadn’t yet seen the completed project.
Circling the News stopped by the concierge desk and asked to speak to a manager around 1 p.m., but one was not available.
Initially, CTN had walked up Monument and then down Swarthmore in order to stop at one of the shops.
Perhaps the closure of the street might have resulted in four different service trucks loading and unloading on Monument.
When a guard was asked why the propane truck was parked in front of a house, he asked “Is that your driveway?”
A delivery man was asked if he knew that deliveries were supposed to be in the alleyway and he acknowledged he was aware of the protocol.
Garcia confirmed that to close a public street, a permit is required.
Photos of the delivery trucks were sent to a Caruso spokesperson.
