Each Condominium Community has their "own" HOA and CC&R's regulations that you will get a copy of when you purchase. My guess would be that you are required to park in your assigned spaces while the overflow spaces are mostly for guests or in and out parking (not overnight). Refer to your Community restrictions for further help.... more

Playa Vista is a "lifestyle community" with many green features, wetland and beach access, recreation and community activities. It's a fairly new development with more retail and commercial building being done to complete it. I worked in the development for several years and never had a resident who did not love living in Playa Vista. You should take a Saturday and visit, that's when they host the "farmer's market". Stay for lunch and enjoy it, and see if it's right for you.... more

Great question a few months age I learn that there have been fracking approvals in Baldwin Hills, Culver City and Inglewood. I hear about it on the Bill Maher Show. I was shocked. Obvious, oil exploration alternatives are not considered. My understanding is that Halliburton will have a major interest in the fracking projects. Homeowners should question impact of fracking on neighborhood values, humans and the environment. Attached are articles about fracking. Do your own thorough research and draw own conclusions on pros and cons of fracking.
