Hancock Park Street Repair Plan Moving Forward


The Hancock Park Streets Committee met this week with Councilman David Ryu and members of his staff to discuss the street repair plan for Hancock Park’s failing concrete streets. HPHOA President Cindy Chvatal shared the recap of the meeting with the Buzz.

“It’s very exciting to actually see a plan and to be working with the Councilman and staff and finally be working toward repair of our streets!” said Chvatal.

The plan for the short term is to start by working to repair the worst streets and intersections. The homeowner’s association has identified the following intersections:

June Street and Beverly Boulevard
Hudson Avenue and 4th Street
…and Las Palmas and Oakwood.

In an effort to determine the most cost effective way to repair the streets, the council office is proposing to invite bids from private contractors to compare with the city’s cost to repave the streets in concrete.

This month, the Bureau of Street Services will be conduct a survey of Hancock Park streets to determine two comparable street segments. One of the two streets will be put out to bid to a private contractor, with the assistance of the HPHA, to get a real estimated cost of what wider repairs will cost. The second street will be done by in-house resources to determine the price for city-based repairs.

Long term, the council office staff noted there are many other neighborhoods that have unique street repair needs that do not conform with the current asphalt-only, 2,400 mile per year repair program. The staff reported they would like to establish a permanent city-wide fund for non-asphalt street repairs that would enable the 4th District, and others, to address needs like those in Hancock Park.

Chvatal said Councilman Ryu will also speak about this at the Hancock Park Homeowner’s Association meeting next month on October 20th at 7 pm at Third Street Elementary School.
