Judge blocks school district building plans

The Right Site Coalition scored a major legal victory in the fight to prevent the Los Angeles school district from demolishing more than 2 blocks of Echo Park homes for a new school — even though enrollment has been plunging.

The EPHS, a member of the coalition, has opposed the proposed 9A site because of the needless destruction of scores of old homes near Alvarado Street and Sunset Boulevard.
