Welcome Our New Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council Representatives
The Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council election results are in and Hancock Park will be represented by Jennifer DeVore and David Trainer as her alternate. Association President Cindy Chvatal is the new director for ‘Other Non-Profit Organizations’ with Hancock Park resident Helen Eigenberg as the alternate. The ‘Other-NonProfit’ seat represents all non-profits in the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council area except educational and religious institutions.
Our Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council is an important platform for all the diverse voices in our neighborhood to be heard, to work on common areas of interest and to coordinate these efforts with the City. Our Neighborhood Council works on development proposals, coordinates with city security services such as the LAFD and LAPD, and works on quality of life issues such as environmental health and transportation. Neighborhood Councils act only in an advisory role and do not have decision making powers. To get more involved find out what’s going on at https://greaterwilshire.org/
The Association has an initiative to document the most egregious sidewalk issues in Hancock Park and to push the City to make repairs. Block captains have submitted the ‘worst sidewalk on their blocks’ to the Association this list now with the Council Office and City. Association has also asked the Council Office and the City to install a sidewalk on the north side of Beverly Blvd between June Street and Rossmore. The first step will be taken when the City installs signs on the north side of Beverly forbidding foot traffic. The Council Office and the City will then develop plans for installing the sidewalk.
It’s getting warm so don’t forget to water your trees, and if you need a tree in your parkway contact the Association at https://www.hancockparkhomeownersassociation.org/
