Mobile Home Park Home Owners Allegiance

As a Kort & Scott Financial Group (KSFG) owned mobile home park resident, have you ever wondered where all the profits from the mobile home parks go?

With KSFG space rents double, sometimes triple that of surrounding parks, you would think your mobile home park would be a five-star palace but instead, you've ended up in an overly priced one-star trailer park with a failing infrastructure and a completely different demographic.

Have you ever thought about what could be so important to cause a company, and all of its culpable employees, to force thousands of people to abandon their mobile homes, some being led into homelessness? This all being done through the process of unfair business practices and 25 year long-term leases with 6% minimum annual increases that are designed to economically evict mobile home owners in a given period of time based on their income levels.

Once a mobile home owner walks away from their home, or is evicted from their mobile home via an Unlawful Detainer Lawsuit filed by Sierra Corporate Management, the process starts all over again with new unsuspecting "Chattels" (rhymes with cattle) or "Cash Cows" as mobile home owners are referred to amongst the industry.

Us "Chattels" are fueling the Michael H. Scott empire with our abandoned, confiscated and recycled mobile homes.

Over the past two decades, Kort & Scott Financial Group have stripped California and other states of a small percentage of niche affordable housing. They've aggressively and nefariously taken rent controlled land away from cities in California with no respect or regard for city rent control ordinances.

The Sierra Corporate Management long-term leases are presented to residents in a way that make rent control look like the enemy when in fact it is the opposite, Sierra Corporate Management and Kort & Scott Financial Group are the enemy for the mobile home owner.

Once Kort & Scott Financial Group purchase your mobile home park, and Sierra Corporate Management take over management of the park, it's only a matter of time and your limited budget as to how long you can stay before abandoning or being economically evicted from your mobile home – that you paid for.

Over two decades of these types of unfair business practices in California, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois and New Mexico have yielded Mr. Lee M. Kort and Mr. Michael H. Scott hundreds of millions of dollars all while living off the backs of minority groups, seniors, low-income families, and any person, or persons, who do not have the financial wherewithal to stand up and protect their rights as a homeowner. These are the primary target groups of Kort & Scott Financial Group – those who cannot defend themselves – until now.

Why are 33 mobile home parks in California owned by Kort & Scott Financial Group and managed by Sierra Corporate Management suffering a loss of services and quality of life? Probably because Mr. Michael Hume Scott of Kort & Scott Financial Group wants to build a $150MM dollar palace on, and into, the side of a mountain in Los Angeles, California.

In the process of this proposed development, he's going to displace a large group of multi-millionaires – now here is a group who can stand up and defend themselves financially.

Where does it stop? Who is going to stop it? How many more victims must there be before Kort & Scott Financial Group and all of its employees are held legally accountable for their crimes and prosecuted to the full extent of state laws?


10101: Great News! Project Dramatically Reduced

Tue, May 16, 2017 Updates – Dear Neighbors, Friends and Supporters,

Over the last several days, Save Our Hillsides has been talking with Michael Scott and his representatives about how Mr. Scott could address the concerns that many have expressed about his proposed house. We are grateful to say that, after much conversation, Mr. Scott has agreed to a number of reductions that go to the heart of what many of us have been concerned about for years.

We all remember the original project. Mr. Scott has revised his proposal. His new house, when compared to the original project, is significantly smaller, less impactful and more in sync architecturally with our community. See a rendering of the new project, attached. The new, smaller project incorporates:

  • A 47,000 square foot reduction in floor area.
  • A 29,900 square foot reduction in deck areas.
  • 26,000 square feet of green, landscaped area.
  • A 51% reduction in the size of the pools.
  • A 99.8% reduction in total dirt export.

Mr. Scott has also agreed to modify the two large hillside decks his most recent proposal included. The purpose of these decks is to provide a place to conceal the dirt that needs to be moved on-site to build the house; if the dirt is not concealed in these deck enclosures then it would need to be hauled in massive trucks through our community. In order to address our concerns about large gatherings and parties on these decks, Mr. Scott has agreed to make these decks steeply sloped and covered in landscaping so that they will be unusable for parties or other large gatherings.

Activity spaces, such as the pool and beach volleyball court, were previously spread out over several levels of decks, moving down the hillside and close to neighbors. In the new, smaller project, all activity areas are now on the top of the “pad” which means they are further away from neighbors. Mr. Scott will also protect the wildlife corridor on his property by planting 43 trees, including protected trees. These extensive modifications will make the hillside greener and more attractive for our community.

In addition to the considerable concessions outlined above, Michael Scott has agreed to sign a covenant that prohibits anyone from making changes to these conditions on the property. That means that no one, including a future owner, would be able to convert the decks into party decks or to destroy the wildlife corridor.

We believe that these concessions are significant. For several years we have been asking Mr. Scott to heed our calls to modify his project so that the impacts on his neighbors and our community were reduced. Today, Save Our Hillsides believes that Mr. Scott has made very substantial concessions to address those concerns. We thank him, and are grateful that he has heard our requests and agreed to make these changes.

None of this would have been possible without the help of Councilmember Paul Koretz and his excellent staff who have worked tirelessly to make sure our community is protected from overdevelopment. Thank you Councilmember Paul Koretz!

As you know, there is a hearing tomorrow at the City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee on Mr. Scott’s permits. We believe that, given the significant reductions and accommodations Mr. Scott has made, it is no longer necessary to fight these permits. Everyone has the right to enjoy their property as long as that enjoyment doesn’t unduly infringe on his neighbors, and we believe that Mr. Scott’s concessions show his commitment to respecting his neighbors and the hillside community. We are pleased to announce that given all of these concessions we are comfortable removing our opposition to Mr. Scott’s house.

Many of you have spent countless hours talking to your neighbors, writing emails, making calls and coming to hearings. You have donated of your time and your money, for which we and your neighbors are eternally grateful.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about this property, however we urge you to consider the significant victory we have been able to achieve, the reductions and protections Mr. Scott has agreed to, and we suggest that members of our community no longer oppose Mr. Scott’s efforts to build his smaller home.

Together, we have shown that when we all come together, we can make our community a better and safer place. Thank you.

Respectfully and Gratefully,

Save Our Hillsides

Community of Multi-Millionaires Say NO to Michael H. Scott Mansion in LA

Mon, Apr 17, 2017 Updates – The Wed, Apr 19, 2017 hearing has been postponed to Mon, May 1, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Los Angeles City Hall (200 North Spring Street, 3rd Floor, Los Angeles, California 90012).

Note: Michael H. Scott is the one half of Kort & Scott dba Sierra Corporate Management and 170+ other companies.

Dear Neighbors, Friends and Supporters,

On Mon, May 1, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Los Angeles City Hall, the City Council Meeting will likely be our last chance to stop Michael Scott’s enormous commercial entertainment complex. As we all remember, Michael Scott reneged on his promise to do an EIR (full environmental study) and instead performed an MND (a watered-down study) on his prior party palace, which Councilmember Paul Koretz opposed and our community resoundingly defeated. INEXPLICABLY, the City is not requiring any environmental review on his new 67,000 square foot party palace. This is unacceptable and we have appealed this issue to the Los Angeles City Council.

At the hearing on Mon, May 1, 2017, the City Council will decide whether or not to revoke Michael Scott’s illegitimate permits, require him to do an environmental review and mandate that he abides by the rules, including the current laws regarding excessive and unsafe development in our hillsides. Our community must prevail.

We have reserved thirty (30) parking spaces at the Los Angeles Times parking garage located at 213 South Spring Street and will be on a first-come first-serve basis.

Here are the three things we all need to do to prevail on Mon, May 1, 2017 at 10:00 AM:

  1. Attend the City Council Hearing – Mon, May 1, 2017 at 10:00 AM at L.A. City Hall (200 North Spring Street, 3rd Floor, Los Angeles, California 90012) and respond to this email as your RSVP!
  2. Email Councilmember Koretz and other members of the City Council and tell them Michael Scott must do an environmental review and that his permits must be revoked. (See The Issues for City Council Below)
  3. Call Councilmember Koretz and other members of the City Council and tell them Michael Scott must do environmental review and that his permits must be revoked. (Contact Details)

This could be the last chance we have to stop Michael Scott's commercial entertainment complex that, if built, will destroy our quality of life with non-stop parties, sound echoing throughout the canyon, inebriated drivers in our streets and years of construction.

Join us. Join your neighbors. Stand together to preserve the serenity and safety of our community. Share this email with your friends, family and neighbors and ask them to join us in this vitally important fight.

We have launched a GoFundMe page to help defray legal and technical fees incurred in the course of our continued appeals. Please visit Save Our Hillsides (https://www.gofundme.com/SaveOurHillsides), with thanks for your continued partnership.

The Issues for City Council

  • Michael Scott promised, in writing, to do an EIR, but he reneged and submitted a woefully deficient MND. Now he’s doing a new project that has significant impacts but isn’t doing any environmental review. THAT’S WRONG!
  • Michael Scott’s previous MND identified impacts not associated with his Haul Route that are still relevant to the current project. He must do environmental review to study those impacts.
  • His current, illegitimately granted permits must be revoked and he must do environmental review to reveal the true impacts of his entertainment complex.
  • His construction has already begun and he is already destroying our hillsides, and a documented wildlife corridor. He MUST address these impacts in an environmental study!

Sound the Alarm! City Issues Permits for Michael H. Scott Mansion in LA

Fri, Mar 10, 2017 Updates – Note: Michael H. Scott is the one half of Kort & Scott dba Sierra Corporate Management and 170+ other companies.

Dear Neighbors, Sound the Alarm! The City has issued Michael Scott permits for a revised “house” at 10101 Angelo View Drive. While this commercial entertainment complex has eliminated its haul route, it is still devastatingly large and will have tremendous impacts.

Shockingly, the City is no longer requiring any environmental review, even though Councilman Paul Koretz previously demanded a full EIR. Here are the details on the “new” version of the “house”:

  • The “house” is four (4) stories and nearly 67,000 square feet (SF), including 31,000 SF of party decks (the decks alone are bigger than two night clubs).
  • Construction requires moving approximately 33,000,000 pounds of dirt, which will decimate the hillside.
  • Construction requires at least 10,000 vehicle trips for cement mixers, supplies deliveries and more than a hundred construction workers.
  • It still looks like an enormous flying saucer perched on the top of the mountain.
  • The parking garage is smaller (it’s still more than 7,000 SF), which means that our streets will be flooded with even more partiers.
  • It still requires as many as 50 freeway-size cement pylons.
  • It is still a full-service party and commercial entertainment complex that is not allowed in a residential area.

There is a hearing to appeal Michael H. Scott’s Building Permits on Tue, Mar 21, 2017 at 9:30 AM (201 North Figueroa Street, 9th Floor, Los Angeles, California 90012). Please join us and help us get his permits revoked!

The Building and Safety Department extended Scott’s permits longer than they should have, and even worse, after that unnecessary extension expired, they issued construction permits even though the application was expired. At the hearing, we have a chance to get his illegitimate permits revoked, but it will only happen if we stand together, again. We must tell the Building and Safety Commission that Michael Scott cannot use illegitimate permits, he must do an environmental review and he must respect his neighbors. Billionaires should not get special treatment.

Michael Scott continues to ignore the community, refuses to meet with us and he still won’t share any details about his “house”. He has already started to decimate the hillside (see image), despite tremendous opposition. We must rally together and stop this monstrous house from being forced on our neighborhood.

In Solidarity – Save Our Hillsides

P.S. Please email the Los Angeles Building and Safety Commission and tell them how you feel.

  1. This entertainment complex will be a mind-boggling 139,000 square feet with an estimated cost of $150MM.
  2. There is a proposed basement (built into the mountainside) that is at least 40,000 square feet.
  3. There will be 27 parking spots for guests and staff.
  4. There will be an automotive gallery where Michael H. Scott can display his automobile collection.
  5. The Giga-Mansion will be 6 levels and 82 feet tall with an elevator, according to Michael Scott's own plans submitted to the city in a neighborhood where houses are only one or two stories tall.
  6. Luxurious living quarters for Michael H. Scott's full time staff are completely underground, perpetuating his mistreatment of others.
  7. There would be an outdoor capacity for parties of 550 people according to the MND.
  8. There will be parties hosted multiple times per week with noise echoing throughout the hillsides, with hundreds of vehicles jamming the streets as they attempt to go to the 24 hour parties.
  9. A helicopter landing pad, creating helicopter noise pollution, in once serene residential areas, that will echo throughout the Los Angeles region.
  10. A complete refusal to work with neighbors, who have continually voiced their concerns.
  11. Swimming pools nearly 500’ long wrapping the exterior of the house being built on hillsides prone to landslides.
  12. Michael Scott promised to prepare a full Environmental Impact Report, then broke his promise by doing a quickie environmental study called an MND, which is full of flaws, inaccuracies, deficiencies and inconsistencies.

    What’s an MND? – A Mitigated Negative Declaration is appropriate when an Initial Study has been prepared and a determination can be made that no significant environmental effects will occur because revisions to the project have been made or mitigation measures will be implemented which will reduce all potentially significant impacts to less than significant levels.

  13. Michael Scott conservatively estimates a construction period of at least four years, but we have experienced with these huge hillside projects it will probably be much longer, perhaps as long as eight years.
  14. There will be hundreds of trips to and from the construction site daily, many of those will be 60,000 pound dump trucks and huge cement trucks pummeling Los Angeles’ aging streets every day.
  15. There will be tens of thousands of construction truck trips up and down narrow hillside streets throughout the course of construction, making them impassable for local residents.
  16. Residents will experience increased pollution levels due to the high level of construction vehicle traffic spewing diesel fumes into the air.
  17. The environmental impact of Michael Scott's proposed Giga-Mansion will be noticeable and measureable.
  18. The construction traffic will endanger families; we have already seen two deaths due to hillside construction in recent years. Local wildlife will also be affected.
  19. The drilling and pounding of dozens of freeway sized piles, some as much as 50 feet deep, into hillsides, threatening the stability of the entire hillside area.
  20. More than 50,000 cubic yards of dirt to be hauled off site by a large number of construction vehicles.

These are just some of the low-lights of Michael H. Scott's proposed Giga-Mansion in the hills of Los Angeles.
