  1. Does anyone know here when is the next car show on Figueroa Street?

  2. The community meeting in Rose Hills drew over 50 Neighbors to hear about the ideas pertaining to the art work to be incorporated into the project, two artist provided conceptual visions. It was great to see the Neighbors involved…… It is being noted that less people are objecting and more people are becoming aware of our major improvements and location of this project. The City, the Departments, North-East Trees, and the Neighbors supported this project from the beginning, those that objected now want to participate, thanks for joining us and watch the growth of our great community.
    Art was the subject matter, great vision and thought went into both options. One provided history, one provided a wholesome sense of nature with butterflies. Most of the communities already understand this is a project for Rose Hills and serving our Nearby Neighborhoods. About 3 people still felt this was in El Sereno, not getting much support for that argument any longer and realized the facts and evidence that were handed out, indicate otherwise. More meetings will be held and more input will be accepted. The feeling the community expressed was that the artwork with the design, influenced by nature, was the most appealing. The other design (Cement pillars and tile) did not win over the crowd. Both artists will go back and modify as best they can to expand their vision to include the input of the Public.
    Join us for future meetings and see what the artists are considering, on proposing to the residents to take a vote on, at some later time. The Neighbors are being heard and it is being open to all, Rose Hills is proud and honored to accept such a creative and wonderful expression of art. Thank You to all those who showed up and a special THANKS to those who spoke up.
