A battle has been brewing over the past decade about a large swath of open space in Studio City along the L.A. River. Just north of Ventura Boulevard between Coldwater Canyon and Whitsett is Weddington Golf and Tennis, which owners want to turn into a condominium development for 200 seniors. But a faction of the community has asserted themselves saying the land should stay open and free of development.

"This is the craziest goddamn thing I've ever seen in my life," said one of the family owners to the Daily News in a report today covering both sides. "It's not their land. It's private property. This is a matter of private property rights."
