"The lawsuit states that the city improperly exempted the project from environmental review and that 'the noise impacts' from the court 'will present a substantial permanent increase in ambient noise levels' both inside and outside the park and make traffic and parking problems worse."

As a neighborhood resident and avid user of Runyon Canyon, I have a hard time believing converting that decrepit tennis court into a functional basketball court will fuel any of the issues they claim. I was happy to hear of the development.

Thoughts?

Maybe the Runyonites should get their masked Marxist offspring to intimidate and chase away any potential b-ball players. Seems to work in other parts of town.

I don't think this would have been as much of an issue if it was just a regular basketball court without corporate branding.

But this whole Pink Dolphin corporate logo is incredibly tacky and in poor taste. The city must be pretty desperate for money to have approved this.

I agree. I have no issues with the basketball court being built but to "brand" this to a corporation on public land is ridiculous.
