Pressure from residents has resulted in progress on repair and maintenance of the Highland Ave. median.
After years of working with the city and the District Four Council Office on the restoration and upkeep of the center divider from Melrose Ave. to Wilshire Blvd., the hard work of the Hancock Park Homeowners Association est. 1948 and its median committee has begun to pay off, said HPHA president Cindy Chvatal-Keane.
The committee, made up of Highland Ave. residents and HPHA board members, will be monitoring TruGreen, the landscape maintenance company the city has contracted with, to maintain the median as per their contract.
TruGreen is responsible for getting the sprinklers fixed, turf fertilized, re-seeded and mowed on a regular basis.
The committee also was successful in getting funding from both Council District Four and Five offices totaling $30,000.
