  Take the Survey, Leave Your Comments and Save Your Neighborhood

The Purple Subway Line is now being built and the LA Planning Department is working on the Purple Line Transit Neighborhood Plan (TNP).  The current proposal would dramatically upzone any area near a major transit line, which includes bus lines.  Since bus lines run throughout Hancock Park, this proposal would put all of Hancock Park at risk for changes in zoning that would allow development of multi story/multiple occupancy residential construction.  It’s no surprise that developers are actively lobbying to make this possible.  It’s vitally important that everyone living in Hancock Park push back to protect our historic neighborhood. The City is conducting a survey and asking for comments, so now is the time for active civic participation.  Our historic neighborhood is at stake.

Here’s what you can do and remember to contact the Association if you have questions or need more information:
