SAVING THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN - A MESSAGE FROM COUNCILMAN TOM LABONGE

A message from Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge.

"Dear Friends,
This weekend, the Hollywood sign will be draped with a fabric sign that reads, "Save the Peak." (I have attached a press release on this event and hope you'll read it.) This effort has been sanctioned by the city and Hollywood Sign Trust. Officials from the Trust for Public Land and I launched a public fund-raising campaign today to purchase a 138-acre parcel of land called Cahuenga Peak, which is situated just to the west of the Hollywood sign. It is absolutely critical that we preserve the view of the famous landmark and open the land to hiking and other recreational uses for future generations of Angelenos. Once the land is purchased, it will be turned over to the city and become part of Griffith Park.
You may be aware that I have worked to purchase of this parcel for years. I hope you'll support this effort. For more information about Cahenga Peak, visit: www.savehollywoodland.org
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact my Director of Communications,
Carolyn Ramsay, (213) 485-3337.
Thank you. Tom"
