- We will be electing a new CD5 Council person in 2022. The Association will host a candidates’ forum so you can meet and hear from the people running. It’s important! Our Council Member impacts the daily life in our neighborhood and electing the right person is critical to the quality and safety of life in Hancock Park.
- Increase neighborhood security:
o Add a third security patrol to join SSA and ADT.
o Research adding security camera license plate readers in the neighborhood.
- Keeping you informed. Continue to expand our excellent neighborhood email communication system. Please contact us on the website to join our email list.
- Working with our new Council Office and Streets LA to continue repair our infrastructure by implementing the priority repair schedule for “fixing our worst streets first”. Currently Lillian Way is being analyzed for repairs that will allow for proper street drainage.
- Working with our new Council Office and LADOT to improve traffic safety and fund and install needed mitigations. Currently working on installing Speed Tables on 6th Street.
- Continuing our care for our beautiful Urban Canopy by planting more trees! We’ve had some desperately needed rain that’s deep watered our urban forest. Time to fertilize your parkway trees. Water your trees if we go two weeks without rain. Our trees are the lungs of the city; cleaning the air, keeping us cool in the summer and helping us fight climate change.
Stay Safe: Subscribe to one of the neighborhood private security services, alert your neighbors and the police if you see something suspicious. Leave outside lights on overnight. Lock your car. Lock your house. Set the alarm if you have one and consider installing one if you don’t. Stay alert on walks and while getting in and out of your car. Walk with a friend when possible.
We’re looking forward to a productive, safe and happy New Year for everyone in Hancock Park and in the beautiful City of Los Angeles, Join us to help make this happen!
