If you haven’t already please respond to the Street Survey which asks residents to vote on one of three options for fixing our streets: 1) Asphalt Resurfacing; 2) Concrete Street Replacement, which would mean homeowners assessments; and 3) No Major Repairs. While the original streets in Hancock Park were concrete; the developer paid for the installation, not the City. The City will repave our streets, but they will only do it in asphalt. To resurface our streets in concrete will take the formation of a special assessment district where Hancock Park residents will tax themselves to raise the additional funds to install concrete. If you haven’t gotten a letter and survey in the mail please contact the Association.
The Highland Median has been trimmed! Drive by and see how it looks. After strong questioning from the Association the City has committed to improving the monitoring of maintenance on the median. The Association is also continuing to use your dues to pay for beautification efforts in Hancock Park. Eight tree stumps have been removed and trees will be planted to replace them as soon as the weather cools.
