Does anyone know for sure if Granito Drive in Los Angeles (Hollywood Hills) is a private road? I've had a comically difficult time figuring this out after contacting multiple city offices.

The street sign does have a "PVT" on it, but my research indicated that the PVT designation means that the road is a "paper" road- a road that has not yet been paved through- and that these signs are artifacts from a time before Granito Drive had houses.

There is some urgency to the question because there is a homeowner on the street who has been harassing construction workers, dog walkers and joggers, claiming that this is his "private" road.

Any assistance would be appreciated!

Hi Chemistry Sally, have you found any answers to your question regarding Granito Rd? I just ran into an angry homeowner at the to of that road who told me I was trespassing on a private road. He got very aggressive and threatened me with violence and death if I did not leave the area. I've talked to multiple officers at the police department who can't give me an answer to the same question. I've left a message with the city planning commission to find out if it is indeed private.

Looks like a dedicated street to me. Tell the pushy homeowner to make some real money so he can have his own private little road behind locked gates.

Too bad it doesn't snow there. The appeal of a private road lessens considerably when you have to pay to have it plowed regularly.

Hello. Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I wanted to both share my experience with you and see if anyone had any additional information on this thread. A police officer told me that Granito is a private road, but it sure doesn't seem that way based on the information here.

Also, I was there recently and was assaulted verbally and battered (hit and spit on) by a man who was living in the house at the top of the road. It was a very scary experience, and it's especially frightening/anger-inducing because it appears that it may not be the first time that this person has threatened people. Does anyone have any other experience with this person or road? I also am curious if any of the people threatened were minorities. I happen to be a minority and the man directed a lot of extremely rude ethnic/religious slurs towards me before deciding to take a swing at me and throw me to the ground.

Regardless if it is a private road or not, it does not give him the right to commit battery. I'd file a formal complaint with either the LAPD or LASD, whoever is the controlling authority in that area.

If this were a private road, the parcel map would show the boundries of each parcel extending through the road. Each property owner would a portion of the land which the roadway exists.


If anyone threatens, attempts to cause you harm, or touches you manner that would lead you to believe they are attempting to harm you, get away from that person. Get back in your car and drive to the bottom of the street. Park, call 911, and advise you have been assaulted. Once the police come, identify the individual and press charges. Nobody needs that b.s.

He's just pissed off that people are using the hiking trail by his home. He's like the guy that moves next to an airport and complains about the airplane noise.


If they had a private road, they would have installed an entry gate at the base.

Sounds like it's time to take a walk or drive up there with a handheld digital video device.
