HPNA Sign Committee Answered Questions from the Community at Nov. HPNA BOD Meeting

Over 20 Hollywood Park residents, including several HPNA members, participated in a discussion prompted by HPNA member Cathy Rogala at the November 9,2015 meeting of the HPNA Board of Directors held at Centennial United Methodist Church.  Ms. Rogala requested to add an agenda item regarding the Hollywood Park Sign Sculpture Project and submitted written questions to the Board in advance of the meeting. The HPNA Sign Committee prepared written responses to Ms. Rogala’s questions and those responses were the basis of a productive discussion at the meeting of neighbors’ concerns and questions regarding the Sign Sculpture Project. The three main topics discussed were: the funding sources of the Sign Sculpture Project, the process for selecting a design for the sign, and how neighborhood engagement in the process thus far has been organized by the HPNA Board. Please refer to the written questions and answers for complete details. Both Ms. Rogala’s questions and the HPNA Sign Committee’s responses are publicly available on the HPNA website here. All of the HPNA’s information about the Sign Sculpture Project is posted on a dedicated HPNA web site page, at this link:

At the end of the discussion, the HPNA Board agreed to continue its communication efforts regarding the Sign Sculpture Project both on social media and in the newsletter.  The Board also announced its support of an idea presented at the meeting to add or expand the sign and neighborhood identity project in the future to include other entrances to Hollywood Park or other forms of neighborhood signs. As always, the HPNA Board welcomes more community involvement to expand the HPNA’s capabilities to work on neighborhood improvement.
