In a statement issued today, CD4 Councilmember David Ryu announced he was putting the construction of the Larchmont Playground on hold “indefinitely.”
“Following our teleconference town hall and the many conversations I’ve had with the Larchmont community over the past few weeks, I have decided to postpone construction of the pocket playground indefinitely. Open discussion and direct dialogue with the community are things I value most in public service. I’m thankful for the years of open communication I have had with the community to improve the Larchmont Boulevard’s vibrancy – and I’m even more thankful today to have new voices engaged on the ongoing issues. Once we get through this Coronavirus pandemic, we will revisit the playground issue in a broader, community-wide discussion so all options and ideas can be brought to the table. But for now, I urge everyone to focus on their health, their families, and supporting one another through this crisis.” – City Councilmember David Ryu.
We will follow up soon with reaction from the community.
