Three months ago, neighbors of this Hollywood area came together and founded the South Hollywood Neighborhood Association, led by community activist Don Hunt, an outspoken property owner of the area. The neighborhood rallied and mobilized volunteers to address issues like the overcrowding through over-development, housing, increasing crimes on the area’s streets, and keeping the integrity of the homes mostly built in the early 1920’s.

Newly established South Hollywood includes the area between N. McCadden Avenue and June Street, west to east, and Melrose Avenue to Willoughby, south to north, an eight block zone falling under Councilman Tom LaBonge’s district. In this general meeting Mr. LaBonge was warmly welcomed and answered the many questions and concerns patiently. The association will continue to work on improving the quality of life of the area and hopes to make a positive and lasting impact.
