City cracks down on weddings at lavish LA home
PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif. — City officials in an upscale Los Angeles County suburb are cracking down — on weddings. The city has charged homeowner Melahat Uzumcu with improperly renting out her lavish 6,900-square-foot home for wedding receptions after neighbors complained of noise and traffic in Palos Verdes Estates. Police Cpl. Greg Robinson said 18 noise complaints have been filed since July.
Uzumcu, who has billed her home as an “elegant chateau” on her Web site, could not be reached for comment.
She will be arraigned Tuesday on charges of violating the zoning code, conducting a business without a license and creating a public nuisance. She could be fined up to $4,000 and jailed up to two years.
