Report From Hearing – September 26, 2018 at City Hall

Dixon Report/Comprehensive Strategies Report

(Wednesday, September 26 at 2:30 p.m. at City Hall)


On September 26th, many neighbors attended the meeting of the Arts, Entertainment, Parks, & River Committee to express their feelings about the Dixon Report (AKA Comprehensive Strategies Report).

The energy was rather intense people gave their one-minute testimonies. Many complained that tourists come to our area. (SEE YOUTUBE VIDEO) Others had instructive comments around options that they felt perhaps lacked merit or feasibility. For instance, there were many who said an outright NO to the concept of a “bulb out” on Beachwood at Glen Holly.

At the end of the meeting, Councilmember Ryu agreed that the “bulb out” was not something that they would be pursuing and that the remaining ideas that the city found feasible would now go forward for further study.

If you would still like to share your thoughts on any of the ideas in that Dixon Report, you can do that by sending email to Shannon Prior or call her at 323-851-2121. You should still reference council file 18-0057.
