Another Successful Adopt-a-Street Event

 

Another Successful "Adopt-a-Street" Event!

October 20, 2018, was an amazing day for the Hollywood Hills Civic Association "Adopt-a-Street" event.

Lots of trash was collected between 46th Avenue and 56th Avenue on Thomas Street in Hollywood. Almost 100 pounds of metal, wood, newspapers, cigar and cigarette butts, nails, plastic bottles, beer bottles, and mini alcohol bottles were picked up off the streets. It was a great feeling knowing we made a difference today.

• A Special Thank You to Marc Vollman, Mardi Podesta, Dominic Anfuso, Sharon Nowell, Rick Prindeville and Pam Burgio for a job well done!


• Thank you to the City of Hollywood Public Works Department for providing all the necessary tools for the street cleanup.

Let's all try to do our part while out walking or riding your bicycle, try to bring a pair of gloves and a small garbage bag so if you happen upon any trash, then you could pick it up and dispose of it properly. You will feel good knowing you are helping to keep your City cleaner.

Mark your calendars for the next Adopt-a-Street Event, Saturday, January 19, 2019.

* Supplies and water will be provided.

 

If you or you know someone who needs community service hours, then join us.

"Thank You Letter" from Nicholas Krivocheiko

Sunday, September 2


To whom it may concern,

I'm Nicholas Krivocheiko, one of this year's HHCA Mel Pollak College Scholarship Award winners. So far my time at the University of Florida has been a blast! I had no expectations coming in, so when I immediately made many incredible friends on my first day, attended various fun events across campus, played at the top-of-the-line sports facilities, and experienced my first ever NCAA Football game, I realized that this is going to be the greatest experience of my life! I love everything about the campus, it's beautiful, I am staying on top of my classes which allows me to pursue my interests on my free time, and my fellow students are great! I want to thank HHCA so much for offering me this generous scholarship, I have been able to cover more than the cost of my books this semester with the funds! I wish HHCA all the best, I hope that the organization and community are going strong, and I can't wait to come back to Hollywood in the winter. I'll never forget where I came from!

Kind regards,

Nicholas Krivocheiko

The current owner of the medical office building at 3800 Johnson Street has procured 3 adjacent residential lots to the west of the 3800 Johnson Street property. These are 3802, 3810 and 3814 Johnson Street. These lots are being converted into a surface parking lot to serve the medical office building at 3800 Johnson Street. The parking lot will meet all City requirements, in terms of screening and landscaping. We are continuing the 6 ft high masonry stucco wall behind the property and it will also be added to the west property line to act as a buffer between the parking lot and existing residential lot next door. We are also adding a 4 ft high masonry stucco wall along Johnson Street, again to screen the parking lot. All walls will have hedges and trees in front of them so as to soften the look of the wall and to meet the City’s requirements.

As you may know, 3800 Johnson Street currently has most of its parking at grade under the building. We will be infilling some of that parking at the east side to create a building addition. This addition will consist of infilling the existing arches of the parking lot and it will be built within the existing building footprint. I have attached 2 images, one is of the existing street view of the building from Johnson Street, the other shows what it would look like with the new addition/infill. As you can see, we are keeping with the same construction materials and color scheme for the new infill so that it blends in seamlessly with the existing building.
