"This is my castle, and I'm here to protect it," LaGuardia said. "Now, suddenly my comfort zone is changing."
LaGuardia is suing the university and the city over environmental concerns like traffic, extra noise on her narrow street, and her property's value.
"Have they come out and said we'd like to buy your house? No," LaGuardia said.
USD spokeswoman Pamela Gray Peyton declined to say whether the university offered to buy LaGuardia's home. She added however, that the master plan has several concessions for LaGuardia. The plan includes minimum setbacks and no decks facing her home.
Gray, however, said that the master plan is merely a vision to guide future developments. No projects are currently proposed, and any future ones would need funding and city permits.
LaGuardia says she likes being near the students, and just wants the master plan reconfigured.
Craig Sherman, LaGuardia's attorney, said the case could move forward next year.
