PAGE SCHOOL STUDENTS were among Larchmont school, business and community members attending the dedication Councilman Tom LaBonge held in July.

North Larchmont Blvd. medians, featuring Jacaranda trees, agapantha and geranium plants and a monument sign, were dedicated on July 17.

The project, spearheaded by Carolyn Ramsay, former chief of staff to Councilman Tom LaBonge, cost $763,000 to date.

The Bureau of Street Services began construction in 2013 on the three medians: a 270-foot strip in the 500 north block;  a 150-foot and 60-foot, on Larchmont Blvd. between Melrose and Clinton avenues.

A CROWD was on hand for the ribbon-cutting.

At the dedication, LaBonge, said the medians would not be completed without the efforts of property and business owners in the area, the Larchmont Boulevard Association and Larchmont Village Neighborhood Association. Donations have been received from the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society, the Hancock Park Garden Club and the Windsor Square Association.

The original medians on South Larchmont Blvd. between First and Third streets, were dedicated in October 2002. Doug Meyer and Linda McKnight chaired the effort, and Carolyn Ramsay headed the fundraising.
