On The Agenda: New Figueroa shops; Colorado Blvd. hours of operation; Dodger post-season traffic plans; faux eucalyptus tree

On The Agenda Collage


This week’s roundup of community meetings and public hearings includes  amending  Eagle Rock’s Colorado Boulevard Specific Plan, which requires new businesses to close their doors at 9 p.m.  In Highland Park,  a wireless service provider wants to build a fake eucalyptus tree that’s really a cellphone tower, and several new businesses may be landing on Figueroa Street, including a coffee house, a retail wine store and more.  Meanwhile, the Dodgers are scheduled to update Echo Park residents on their post-season traffic plans.

  1. The first Highland Park link (re 5916 Figueroa) seems to be broken.

  2. I hate wireless towers disguised as trees. I would much prefer they disguise the towers as a clock tower or even a round metal structure at the top, with a mural that represents the area!
