Please Keep Everyone Safe!
As the state and city have reopened businesses and more and more people are resuming activities, it’s important to remember that the Coronavirus is not gone. It’s still infecting people at increasing rates and while some people show no or mild symptoms, others in your family or community could get deathly ill, suffering long term health problems or even death. Please, please, please wear a mask and keep a social distance of at least six feet from other people. Until there is a vaccine this disease is going to continue to cause pain, suffering and death. The most vulnerable among us are at great risk: those with compromised immune systems, those with chronic diseases and those disabled by strokes, cancer or other health problems. Be the best person you can be and take care of others by doing all you can to stop the spread of the disease. Remember: wearing a mask protects other people, not you. You are only protected if other people wear masks.
As businesses reopen, it’s clear that many of our neighborhood restaurants and shops have suffered a devasting loss of income in the last three months. Make a point of visiting Larchmont Village and other areas of business around us and getting a meal togo, or buying a book or new shirt.
The Association Website is an excellent source of ongoing information and a place where you can contact Association Board members about getting a tree planted, status of the street repair project and many other things - https://www.hancockparkhomeownersassociation.org/page-18054/5048881
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. And don’t forget to respond to the census, if you haven’t already. Go to https://2020census.gov/?UTM_campaign=c20m&utm_medium=partner&utm_source=nextdoor&utm_state=ca
