Neighborhood Council Approves Annual Tree Trimming Funding

Studio City Neighborhood Council also learns Council District 2 will match funds for a public art project along the Los Angeles River.

It's time for Studio City's most brown palm trees to get its annual makeover, and the neighborhood council made sure to approve $3,000 for the work as well as landscaping maintenance within the community.

The funds go to the Studio City Beautification Association. It covers palm trees needing trimming on Ventura Boulevard west of Whitsett Avenue and east of Carpenter Avenue, as well as some trees in the shopping center.

The work is completed by an arborist approved by the beautification association. Neighborhood council members added that work to trim the community's pistache trees are for another day.

Also at its Jan. 15 meeting, the neighborhood council approved a motion to approve matching funding toward 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.

However, the funds are approved only on condition that City Councilmember Paul Krekorian's office in District 2 matches up to a maximum of $3,000 for the art project.

Neighborhood Council President John Walker noted that Krekorian's office has already confirmed its commitment and could even exceed it.

Located just below the greenway's multi-use trail, the mural would be 10 feet high and 20 feet wide, according to The Village Gardener's President Rick Rabins, who provided a presentation to the council. It will be made out of natural stone and not contain any political messages.
