Brentwood Circle is a small neighborhood within the larger neighborhood of Brentwood on the Westside of Los Angeles.

Geography[edit]

Brentwood Circle is a gated community located north of Sunset Boulevard and adjacent to the Getty Center.[2]

History[edit]

In 1995, Brentwood Circle became the first established neighborhood in Los Angeles to be enclosed with security fences. (The city’s other gated neighborhoods were enclosed when they were built.)[3] The Los Angeles City Council voted to allow residents to cut off public access to five streets just off Sunset Boulevard. Each household pays up to $300 a month for street maintenance and other costs. The primary concern for gating the community was the potential traffic increase due to the Getty Center museum being built.[4]

In 2003, to protest gated communities, activists Heavy Trash deposited viewing platforms in front of the gated neighborhoods of Brentwood Circle, Laughlin Park, and the Palazzo at Park La Brea.

Education[edit]
