Thank you for letting us share with you our upcoming meetings and other news!
Hello Highland Park!

Welcome to your weekly HHPNC Newsletter, and welcome to summer!

This week we are kicking it off by participating in a very special Vision Zero event, Trees of Life, with Avenue 50 Studio. We are also gearing up to be a part of the awesome annual 4th of July Extravaganza that Councilman Huizar and his staff at CD14 put on every year.

On a more somber,  but essential business note, the Rules committee will be meeting this Thursday. The Rules committee goes over our policies, procedures, and bylaws, to make sure the neighborhood council is best serving its purpose and that these policies and rules best facilitate this objective. Also this Thursday are meetings of the Beautification Committee, the Housing and Homelessness Committee and the Outreach Committee.  Stakeholders LIKE YOU are welcome to attend and provide a public comment. Public attendance at meetings is not only your right and a legal requirement that we make available, but I see it more as a privilege and somewhat of a duty to your own participation in our awesome free society. So get on over and check it out! You never know what you might learn or what new friends in the neighborhood you might pick up along the way.

We look forward to seeing you out in the neighborhood soon!

  Avenue 50 Studio invites you to participate in Trees of Life!  June 21-25, 2017  
From Avenue 50 through Avenue 60 
Trees of Life is an Avenue 50 Studio production in collaboration with L.A.N.I., and supported by the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council, and the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation and Community Arts Resources as part of Vision Zero.

“Vision Zero is a city(nation)wide initiative that makes safety the highest priority of our streets. Every year, more than 200 people are killed while trying to move throughout our city. Nearly half the people killed on our streets are those who were walking or bicycling, and an alarming number of them are children and older adults. In fact, traffic collisions are a leading cause of death for children in Los Angeles.”
Vision Zero: zero traffic deaths on our streets by the year 2025!

Tuesday, June 20th there is a pet event free spay and neuter in the Highland Park area at the Food 4 Less on Figueroa/Avenue 51.  10am-2pm.  Call 1-855-499-5829 or 1-805-499-5829 to register or email
Summer Night Lights (“SNL”) operates at 32 locations across the City of Los Angeles, keeping recreation centers and parks open and adding extended programming between the hours of 7 pm – 11 pm during the summer.   Highland Park Recreation Center is participating in this program.  
  Fourth of July doesn't need to rock the animal world.

Fireworks scare our furry friends and "pop pop pop" will send your pet running away.  Please make sure your pets have their id tags and are microchipped. Keep them inside at night from now until after the Fourth of July holiday. We know Highland Park likes to rock their fireworks way before the 4th holiday.

And do report illegal fireworks anonymously with Crimestoppers!
