The event was conceived as an opportunity for the HHA to entertain and connect with our neighbors — that goal was met, and then some.
HHA President Tara Stephenson produced gorgeous photographs of early Hollywoodland, which were displayed on the windows of the Beachwood Market.
Other board members and volunteers provided snacks and sweets, and Alex Papalexis graciously provided lemonade and iced tea for the crowd.
Jean Clyde Mason displayed her 1936 MGA, and we even had a band!
The event was also an opportunity to honor architect Michael Mekeel for his tireless work to defend the Specific Plan. Michael lives on Rodgerton, and serves on the DRB. We are lucky to count him a neighbor.
We at the HHA work hard to maintain a sense of community in Hollywoodland, and to protect our community interests with the city. We so appreciate all the residents who came out on Sunday to share the afternoon with us. We need your support, and we hope you know you have ours.
If you missed this event, we do so hope to see you at the next one!
The HHA delivered this presentation to Councilman Ryu’s office during our bimonthly meeting with his staff.__ Hollywoodland July 14-17 2017
Councilmember Ryu is undertaking a $100k traffic and safety study of Griffith Park and the Hollywood Sign. His office has sent this survey to all the neighborhoods bordering the park.
This survey is only a few questions — it should take less than five minutes of your time.
We are asking our members to please complete this survey and return it to the Councilman. As the residents of historic Hollywoodland, it is we who are most impacted on a daily basis by visitors to the Sign. Our narrow streets and our properties bear the brunt of poorly conceived and terribly mismanaged planning to date.
The HHA is committed to working with the Councilmember and all surrounding neighborhoods to create a safe, legal, and equitable plan for Griffith Park and the Sign.
