After hearing the news of the recent robbery in Hancock Park and working together to improve neighborhood safety, the Hancock Park Homeowners Association has organized a Hancock Park Security Town Hall this evening, Monday, December 6, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. We will discuss the presence of LAPD, our Neighborhood Watch programs with our own Block Captains and private patrol provided by SSA and ADT.
Our speakers will include:
- Our new LAPD Wilshire Division Captain Anthony Otero
- Senior Lead Officer Dave Cordova
- SSA Private Security Representative Terry Segraves
- ADT Private Security Representative Mike Ball
In addition to working on neighborhood safety, the association has been busy representing your interests in the Los Angeles City Council Redistricting process.
Thanks to all the hard work and dedicated efforts of the Association and you, our members, Hancock Park is now part of Council District 5. Being in Council District 5 unites many of the communities of interest within Hancock Park with those in neighboring communities; and includes the majority of neighborhoods that make up our Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council. Our new Councilmember is Paul Koretz, and we are excited to start working with him to help improve our neighborhood security and traffic safety, continue repairing our infrastructure – streets, sidewalks and curbs – and to keep Hancock Park the beautiful and vital part of Los Angeles it has always been. CM Koretz has been a long serving well-respected and effective Councilmember, and has years of experience helping the city and his constituents.
The Association is sponsoring a virtual “Meet and Greet” Town Hall with Councilmember Koretz on Thursday, January 13th at 6:30 PM. The Zoom link can be found on our website www.HancockPark.org. We hope you will attend!
We thank the Redistricting Commission and City Council for their hard work on drawing the new district boundaries. The districts were drawn using census data, connecting communities of interest, following the Voting Rights Act, and listening to the community. Final map adjustments were made by Councilmember motions in order to try and ensure fair and equitable representation.
Here’s some of what’s been accomplished in Hancock Park this past month:
- Streets LA working with the Association has restored the framework and priority list of streets, sidewalks and curbs – “Fix the Worst First” – Hudson is being repaved in concrete from Wilshire to 3rd and Lillian Way is being analyzed as the possible next fix.
- Continued care for our parkway canopy with Urban Forestry- removing trees as needed and the HPHOA replanting new trees using the Hancock Park Master Tree Plan Guidelines.
- Survey completed for Hancock Park and Surrounding Neighborhoods to be shared with the Council Office and LADOT for proposed Traffic Safety Mitigations on 6th Street btw La Brea and Highland and Priority Bus Lanes on La Brea during peak hours 7-10am and 3-7pm.
Remember to stay safe: lock your car, your house, set your alarm if you have one, subscribe to one of the private security services and alert your neighbors and the police if you see something suspicious.
May everyone have a wonderful holiday season and we’re looking forward to a productive New Year.
