Anyone know what is going on with the hill under one of our favorite midcentury modern houses on the hill?

Some sort of weird retaining wall?
Artful brush clearance?
Prepping to grow wine grapes?

Broadview Sanitarium is installing a solar array.

I have always wondered about that Sanitarium place...

Thank you for the answer regarding the hillside. I wonder how the array is going to look next to my favorite house in LA. I like the idea of solar on roof tops but not so much on previously unmolested land. I guess it is better than a huge condo complex.

Yes, or hundreds of oil derricks.

Yeah I don't know what to think about this either. I like that it is solar but isn't the WHOLE hillside a little overkill?

Exactly. I don't think the area is zoned for a solar power farm.

Maybe it is just heavy planting to hold up the Hill in case of Mudslides??

I'm in the Hollywood Hills, btw.
Thanks for your visit...!

I was going to pose the exact same question on my blog, but I figured I should check here first. Thanks.

Too bad about the hill being developed for energy production.

I like it! I not only favor solar energy, but I think the panels are kind of cool to look at. I hope it inspires more people to use solar energy.

where is the Broadview Sanitarium in relation to the mid century?

Almost directly underneath. Maybe they can tap in.

There is a lot of concern, but I think it will look fine. Think of it as a permanent art installation. It's solar, it's positive and progressive.
