Increase pedestrian access to Kenneth Hahn in Baldwin Vista

This petition had 169 supporters


We the undersigned support increased access from our community to Kenneth Hahn Park via North East Trees' planned proposal.

This supports increased access to Kenneth Hahn through a La Brea access trail and possibly a utility line trail addition. We will ALL be a part of the conversation as this continues. We want more nature in our community! Turn wasted space into green space our families and community can enjoy!

Studies have shown that this type of amenity would either increase or not affect home values in the area. https://headwaterseconomics.org/wphw/wp-content/uploads/trails-library-property-value-overview.pdf

Similar studies showed that increased traffic in otherwise restricted areas can help reduce crime by keeping friendly eyes on the space.

PLEASE READ THIS STUFF! A trail would be good for our neighborhood!

Thanks everyone for your support and conversation. We want to make this neighborhood beautiful for our community and increase access for everyone! 

Thanks for your support!
