The Los Angeles Film School has stopped fighting the Hollywood Farmers' Market, at least for now. The LA Times reports that the school sent a letter to the city yesterday saying it was dropping all protest against the market, but that it'd reserve the right of backsies (the school had dropped its official complaint in April). The very popular HFM blocks the Ivar Avenue entrance to an LAFS parking lot on Sunday mornings and early afternoons and has been running on temporary permits since last December, when the film school first opposed a permit renewal and requested that the market be moved. A rep for City Councilmember Eric Garcetti says that as soon as the city gets the LAFS's letter, it'll give the market a one-year permit. But a rep for the school tells the LAT that "officials there maintain their right to re-invoke the complaint. She said that could lead to a hearing before the Board of Public Works, and possibly, the suspension of the market's permits." Worth noting: the film school is considering building something at Ivar and Selma, right in the disputed area.
