A City of Rolling Hills "Protect View" Preservation Rules Ordinance, Measure RH-B ballot question was on the March 5, 2013 ballot for voters in the City of Rollings Hills in Los Angeles County, where it appears to have been narrowly approved.[1]

The City of Rolling Hills already has "view preservation" regulations in place. The approval of Measure B means that those regulations will be changed so that only the views that existed at the time the owner acquired the property will be protected. Trees that get in the way of a view and that were mature when a property was acquired are exempt. Measure B also establishes a higher burden of proof to establish the existence of a protected view.
