The Hancock Park
Homeowners’ Association, est. 1948, thanks all the speakers who made our annual
meeting a great success. LAPD Captain
Howard Leslie and our Senior Lead Officer, David Cordova, spoke about the LAPDs
efforts to address the crime that has been occurring in Hancock Park. They answered questions and encouraged
residents to follow precautions such as not leaving anything visible in parked
cars, locking their doors, turning on their security systems and to be sure and
report all crimes. Call 911 if you see a suspicious person or a
crime in process, do not intervene yourself!
LA Department of
Transportation representative Bhuvan Bajaj answered questions about traffic mitigation
options. Hancock Park, has seen an startlingly
recent increase in cut through traffic on our streets and residents have been
expressing concerns about safety.
The Hancock Park
Streets Committee Chair Tim Allyn presented an update of the Committee’s work
in determining costs for repaving Hancock Park concrete streets with
concrete. Details will be discussed in
our next column. DWP representative Greg
Bartz reminded all of us to conserve water and to plan drought tolerant
landscaping. There were updates from SSA
Security and ADT Security to augment the recommendations given by the LAPD. Finally, the election of the candidates
nominated for the HPHOA Board of Directors was announced.
