WeHo Invites Community Input on 2020 Hart Park Improvements

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — The City of West Hollywood invites community members to take part in shaping the future of site improvements coming to the William S. Hart Park. Community members are encouraged to share ideas about improving pedestrian and vehicular accessibility into the park as well as discuss possible upgrades to existing park amenities.

Beginning in early 2020, a variety of community outreach events will be held at various locations in West Hollywood including Hart Park, West Hollywood Park, and Plummer Park.

A landscape architect will be present at the first community pop-up which will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hart Park, located at 8341 De Longpre Avenue.

A full list of outreach events and more information about Hart Park can be found on the City’s website at weho.org/hartpark

There will also be a series of facilitated community meetings where the City’s selected landscape architect will present renderings that represent how the park may look based on feedback and consideration of the community’s comments and ideas.

The final concepts will be presented for approval to the West Hollywood City Council at a regular scheduled meeting in mid-2020.  These pop-ups and community engagement events will provide opportunities for everyone to learn more about Hart Park, share ideas and comments to improve the park, and meet City staff and other community members who are interested in shaping the future of Hart Park.

The primary focus of the improvements is to provide access to the park for all park patrons by updating existing parking and ramps, improving the dog park surface and amenities, and enhancing security features such as lighting. 

The park currently has amenities available to the public including a fenced-in off-leash dog area, AIDS Memorial, and a water fountain.

The park is surrounded by trees and landscaping. There is also an historic house and a theater used and operated by The Actors Studio. Improvements and upgrades to the existing buildings will be performed in a separate phase of work.

The City of Los Angeles owns the property, but its grounds and structures are long-term leased and maintained by the City of West Hollywood.

For more information, please call the City of West Hollywood’s Senior Project Manager, Christina Sarkees, at (323) 848-6571, or csarkees@weho.org.

For people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, please call TTY (323) 848-6496.

LOS ANGELES (Curbed LA) — Heavy machinery was placed Monday in front of the the Ahmanson Building on Wilshire Boulevard to aid in pre-construction work, namely abatement, says Jessica Youn, a Los Angeles County Museum of Art spokesperson.

That caused some alarm among museum fans, who feared demolition was finally in full swing.

“We’ll paint it from life as we see the heavy machinery tear its guts out,” local arts group Roofless Painters posted on Instagram.

The abatement, which would find and remove any potentially hazardous materials in the marble-clad edifice, must be done before the building and three others at the museum can be torn down to make way for a new, divisive museum structure designed by […]
