Council approves Hollywood's first pedestrian alley

Today the City Council approved the creation of Hollywood’s first pedestrian alley, which will be located west of Cosmo Street between Hollywood Boulevard and Selma Avenue. The alley will be the first of its kind in our district.

Our office worked with property owners and business tenants to develop a vision for an outdoor open space for visitors and local residents to stroll or sit. Business owners will add their own flavor to the alley with outdoor dining options and patio space.

Several components of the alley will be rehabilitated or constructed as part of the project, including the addition of new drainage, lighting, pavement, and a security system. The pedestrian alley is expected to be completed by Summer 2010.

Many thanks to the Hollywood community leaders who helped make this project possible and attended this morning's council meeting to support it!
