The following article was published by Palos Verdes Patch:

With only a five-vote margin, Measure B—the second citizens' initiative ever placed on the Rolling Hills municipal ballot—has passed, according to final, official results from the city released Wednesday evening.

Measure B, which amends the city's sometimes-controversial view-protection ordinance, looked as though it may fail Tuesday night; however, late vote-by-mail and provisional ballots pushed it over the edge for a 5-vote win.

The ayes took 50.3 percent of the vote, or 408 votes total.

Measure B specifies that the view a property owner has a right to is the view the property had when the owner purchased it. Additionally, it exempts so-called mature trees from removal.

Councilman Thomas Heinsheimer, who lost his re-election bid, vehemently opposed the measure, saying that it could open the city to additional lawsuits.
