It’s that time of year, when we ask our residents to please support of the HPHOA’48, by becoming dues paying members. This past year your dues helped support many efforts to preserve the quality of life in our neighborhood, including the purchase, planting and maintenance of over 80 new trees, donations to support our local Fire Station, 3rdStreet School, John Burroughs Middle School, and The Hollywood Beautification Team/graffiti removal.
In the coming year the Association will work with our Council Office to try to ensure that our Hancock Park streets are repaired and resurfaced. We will also be working with LADOT and our Council Office as the City revises and updates the General Plan/Mobility Element. This plan will have direct effect on our streets and traffic. We will work to keep our residents informed as to how they can stay involved and voice comments on this important issue.
The HPHOA’48 continues to work on neighborhood beautification by removing tree stumps, replacing parkway trees, and maintaining the newly planted parkway trees. We will be planting new trees during the winter months. If you are interested in having a tree planted in your parkway or a stump removed please contact Board member, Susan Grossman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association continues to update our neighborhood email list. If you would like us to add you to the list please provide us with your email address by including it in the space provided on the enclosed dues envelope. You can also email the information to our Block Captain Chairs: Cindy Chvatal-Keane at email@example.com and Jen DeVore at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your name and street address in the email. Being on the email list allows us to communicate with you on neighborhood issues. Through our Neighborhood Watch/Block Captain Program, we alert residents to security situations in the neighborhood such as break-ins, robberies and vandalism. We are able to send emails to residents within hours of receiving this information. We respond as quickly as possible to residents’ questions and concerns regarding street closures, street light problems, street repair, zoning and land use and HPOZ questions. If we can’t answer your questions, we can help direct you to the City departments that can. Our email list has also helped reunite many lost pets with their owners!
On behalf of the HPHOA’48 Board, I wish you a Happy & Healthy 2012!
Cindy Chvatal-Keane, President, HPHOA’48
