Soon, when you leave the bustle of the big city and cross Mulholland Drive—at either Laurel Canyon or Coldwater Canyon Boulevards—you'll see a patch of native foliage and a sign marking Studio City.
It's another ambitious year for the all-volunteer Studio City Beautification, an affiliate of the Studio City Residents Association.
Also, work has been done at Maxwellton at Laurel Terrace, and Laurel Canyon at Oakdell Road.
Public agencies like the Department of Public Works and the Studio City Neighborhood Council have pledge support for the team.
"Studio City Beautification is responsible for keeping trees and greenery along Ventura Boulevard, and beyond," said Alan Dymond, the president of the Studio City Residents Association.
Last year, their biggest project was a mini walking park with native foliage along Ventura Boulevard across from the Department of Water and Power building.
