I flipped the switch on a brand-new lighted crosswalk in Hollywood today, connecting Toyota of Hollywood with the north side of Hollywood Boulevard. Installing this crosswalk and the flashing yellow light above it was a priority for my office after Toyota’s general manager Tony Chapman told me that his employees and customers had had more than one near miss crossing the street. There are 200 employees at the dealership, which was the first Toyota showroom in the United States. It’s one of Hollywood’s big sales tax generators. Business tax reform has been one of my premier projects on the city council, but one of the simplest and best things that L.A. can do for business is to keep improving our infrastructure. A city where employees and customer can safely and easily walk to your store is a business-friendly city.
