According to the LA Times, "Los Angeles officials use street-quality grades to prioritize repairs."  In 2013, they gave Griffith Park Boulevard an “F.”  In 2016, they gave us an “F,” yet again.

Their only response has been to conduct more "studies."  We must ask ourselves what progress might look like. Is it repairing the grading system to enable a grade lower than an "F"? Or is it demanding that our representatives take the necessary actions required to repair our streets?

Our streets have been neglected for far too long. We must come together as the powerfully-networked community that we are and give out our own grade: an "F" for failing our community.

As a major thoroughfare, Griffith Park Boulevard must be repaved from Sunset Boulevard to Los Feliz Boulevard. This road is the needle that threads two incredible neighborhoods together: Franklin Hills and Silver Lake. It connects us as a community, one that shares many of the same concerns.

Also, this project would create jobs in our own community. The more public works projects, the more jobs. The more jobs, the more tax paying members of our community. The more taxpayers, the more tax revenues giving us more money to improve our infrastructure, our schools, our homelessness problem.

As The Griffith Park Boulevard Community Coalition, motivating our elected officials to fix this street is now community Project #1, the first of many initiatives to come. 

Join us.

Join us then "pass it on." Pass it on to every person in your social network here in L.A. and together we'll speak as one to City Council representative David Ryu, president of the Board of Public Works Kevin James, as well as the Silver Lake and Franklin Hills Neighborhood Councils. 

Let's hold our elected officials accountable for THEIR "F" and demand an "A."

This petition will be delivered to:
  • City Councilmember, Los Angeles District 4
    David Ryu
  • Kevin James
  • Silver Lake Neighborhod Council
  • Franklin Hills Neighborhod Council
