Thank you for letting us share with you our upcoming meetings and other news!
Hello Neighbor, and Happy June!

Welcome to your weekly newsletter from the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council! We had an awesome time at the Lummis Day festival over the weekend. We met a lot of new people and saw many of our friends and neighbors at our official table. Did you come by and say hello? We are excited to be adding dozens of new stakeholders to our list of newsletter subscribers. That means that dozens more of your neighbors decided to get more informed and be more engaged with city government. At the end of the day, that is what it’s all about and exactly why I am here every week writing to you. So, needless to say, we are always stoked to meet more of our neighbors and stakeholders!     READ MORE

Fourth of July doesn't rock the animal world. Fireworks petrify our furry friends and "pop pop pop" will send your pet running away.  Please make sure your pets have their ID tags and are micro-chipped. Also keep them inside at night from now on and until after the Fourth of July holiday. We know Highland Park likes to rock their fireworks way before the 4th holiday.

6th Annual Make Music LA Registration is Open
Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for? (Audience) Why should they care? (Benefit) What do I want them to do here? (Call-to-Action).

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"
Everyone needs comforting this year more than ever. We have community members who are living in fear. You can help to alleviate some of the tension in your neighborhoods by embracing the arts. Music is a healer. Make Music LA is an outreach opportunity to bring people out of their homes onto the front porch or into a park or community garden for a concert.  Registration is now open.   READ MORE
  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!
