The Studio City Business District was created in 1999. The District has a successful history of providing special benefits to individual assessed parcels within the District.
At the Western edge of the Studio City Business District is the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel. It was established in the 1880’s and is considered a San Fernando Valley historical landmark. It’s most notable feature, besides a hotel, banquet and restaurant facilities, is a famous pond that many Studio City residents recall fishing in as young children. Historically, celebrities such as Clark Gable, Bette Davis, and John Wayne were known to spend time there, just to name a few.
