Our neighborhoods are some of the most popular areas for tourists to use as a way to experience the Hollywood sign, and as such are attracting a volume of people on narrow and substandard streets that proves challenging to control and manage. This has created a safety hazard for bothresidents and visitors alike. The Ford Theater Trail project will direct much needed modernization and viewing access to an alternative site, redirecting traffic to a more responsible and infrastructure rich location, hopefully alleviating some of the pressure being felt along our narrowcanyon streets, increasing safety and providing a better viewing experience of the Hollywood Sign for all.
