"This is a terrific opportunity to upgrade our neighborhoods and strengthen communities," hen said. "With these funds, we will work closely with neighborhood councils in my district to kick off beautification and improvement projects throughout Council District 2. These grants will be used by each community for projects that will create an enhanced quality of life for our Valley."
Made possible by the council office’s discretionary funds, the grant program aims to provide neighborhood councils in Council District 2 - comprised of Greater Valley Glen, Mid-Town North Hollywood, North Hollywood North East, North Hollywood West, Studio City, Sun Valley, Valley Village and Van Nuys - resources for community-driven, infrastructure projects that enhance, strengthen and beautify the neighborhood.
Recently in Studio City, Krekorian helped organized a clean-up and tree planting along the Los Angeles River, and also told the neighborhood council he would match funds with The Village Gardeners of the Los Angeles River toward a design, fabrication and installation of a river themed, mixed media public art project along the Los Angeles River Greenway.
Grants would help to support landscaping projects, tree plantings, benches,
planters, curb cuts and more. The
program's creation and launch are part of a larger push to increase
beautification and revitalization efforts across the second district,
led by the office of Councilmember Krekorian.
All projects will be initiated, planned and implemented by
community members in partnership with the council office and all neighborhood
councils are invited to apply for up to $10,000 each.
