    This did not occur in Mount Olympus. Briar Summit is located near Laurel Canyon & Mulholland – not near or adjacent to Mt Olympus! Mt. Olympus is a specific community about about 2 miles south with underground utilities and no Water towers. The ancient Greek names on all the streets in the devleopment define the boundaries of the community.
