Glassell Park residents and community leaders gathered last week to dedicate the installation of Fletcher Square signs over the intersection of Fletcher Drive and San Fernando Road. It’s kind of difficult to spot the pair of tan and brown Fletcher Square signs at the often traffic-choked corner surrounded by fast food restaurants. But the idea behind the signs is to build a sense of identity and generate neighborhood pride in Fletcher Square, a relatively new name used by some to describe the nearby blocks. Bradley, chairman of the Glassell Park Neighborhood Council, refers to the area as FSQ. In fact, the nearby Drew-Estara Neighborhood Watch has been renamed the FSQ Neighborhood Watch, he said.
About 250 people attended the Fletcher Square dedication during a ceremony catered in part by some of the surrounding fast-foot restaurants. Bradley (he goes by one name) also said Council District 13 is looking at potential ways to improve traffic at the intersection.
