A Westside Subway Extension proposal to put a station in the middle of Century City has made some Beverly Hills homeowners irate. It's not about having a station two-tenths of a mile further away than originally proposed -- it was to place a station at the edge of Century City -- but about how that station would mean digging underneath their homes.

“We strongly believe that it makes no sense to save somebody the convenience of walking a block to put hundreds of homes and two schools - Beverly Hills High School and Good Shepherd School - in whatever danger there may be," said Ken Goldman, President of the South West Beverly Hills Homeowners Association (SWBHHA), to the Beverly Hills Courier.
