We are also pleased to announce that the Draft Hollywood Community Plan will be presented at two Open House/Public Hearings in the second week of November:

Hollywood Community Plan DEIR Released

March 11th, 2011

After over a year plus of delay the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Hollywood Community Plan Update has finally been released.  City Planning was originally scheduled to release the DEIR in the Fall of 2009 but (for a variety of reasons) ended up delaying the release of the DEIR several times.

City Planning has set a 60 day public review period for the DEIR.   Comments on the DEIR are due to City Planning by 5PM on May 2, 2011.  All comments should be directed to:
