Rebirth of The Palomar

Under Construction

I have written previously about the most harrowing day in my life as a Councilmember: the Palomar fire that left Luis Galindo and his two children without a wife and mother. We acted quickly after the fire to seize some hope from the ruins of the building, and Hollywood Community Housing Corporation has undertaken the project of turning the Palomar's burnt shell into an affordable housing project. The finished project will feature 27 units of affordable housing, a sorely needed addition. Bill Harris, HCHC's executive director, send this picture along. Progress!
