A VOLJ/Village News Exclusive:
For the past ten months La Jolla resident artist Nasser Pirasteh has been doing battle with the City of San Diego over the definition of an “art piece” set on his property, so described by Nasser, and it being a “structure” as stated by city inspectors.
After two hearings where the city held firm (despite the support of La Jollans), the threat of the onerous fines and time line for action were reestablished, ultimately resulting in Nasser’s recent decision to end the fight.
VOLJ radio and the La Jolla Village News learned through an exclusive telephone interview with Mr. Pirasteh that continuing to counter city hall would cost him over $250,000 in fines, causing him financial ruin. Listen now to the rest of the story.
