Take Care of Yourself and Your Neighbors
The outbreak and spread of the Novel Coronavirus has caused a great deal of disruption and inconvenience to those not infected, and sickness and sometimes death to those infected. These types of situations are what truly test the bonds of community, and Los Angeles and Hancock Park have shown that we know we’re all in this together and will do whatever it takes to help our family and neighbors stay healthy and safe. Remember the simple guidelines to wash your hands with soap and water (20 seconds or two Happy Birthdays), keep your hands away from your face and to follow the instructions of our mayor and city, state and federal governments. Check in with your neighbors, if possible by email or telephone, and make sure no one is in need.

The Council Office has been working hard to ensure that the Larchmont Farmers’ Market remains on Larchmont. The Farmers’ Market operator has been looking for a larger space on Larchmont because of the success of the market and the desire to host more vendors. The community and the Council Office met by telephone conference last month to discuss keeping the market on Larchmont.
Spring seems to have arrived quickly this year, so tree planting will soon commence. If you need a street tree, let us know via our website, and the tree will be planted at the Association’s expense.
If you’re planning to make any changes to the street-visible portion of your house, including hardscaping and windows, check with our HPOZ Planner Suki Gershenhorn (firstname.lastname@example.org) before starting. The HPOZ Preservation Plan, which regulates our HPOZ, can be found at preservation.lacity.org/hpoz/la/hancock-park. There is also an online form you can fill out to help speed up the process — the Initial Screening Checklist (preservation.lacity.org/hpoz/initial.screening.checklist). Report graffiti sightings by calling 311 or at the City’s Anti-Graffiti Request System: laocb.org/programs/graffiti-abatement and by calling Hollywood Beautification, 323-463-5180.
