HHCA-Mel Pollak College Scholarship Award

Alexis Nicole Van Lenten - CM 2017
and Elena Lauren Van Lenten - CM 2018

Elena Lauren Van Lenten

The last two years winners of the Hollywood Hills Civic Association Scholarship from Chaminade-Madonna are sisters Alexis and Elena Van Lenten.

Alexis graduated in 2017 and just completed her sophomore year at Florida State University. After a year and a half of studying Interdisciplinary Medical Science, she decided to change course and pursue a degree in business with a minor in psychology. Alexis’ plan is to become a marketing professional or human resource specialist upon graduation. She has taken classes year round since she started FSU and volunteers at Broward General in the summer months. She also does community service through her sorority Delta Zeta while in Tallahassee.


Her younger sister Elena, our scholarship winner last year for 2018 just completed her freshman year at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Elena was honored to have made the dean’s list her first semester and is on track to do the same for the spring semester. She is currently enrolled in the College of Design and Construction Management at UF where she is studying architecture and design. She loves Gator football and is very active with her sorority Delta Phi Epsilon.

Both young women are life-long residents of Hollywood Hills and attended Nativity School prior to Chaminade-Madonna. They were and continue to be honored by the recognition of their community service through the HHCA Scholarship. Their family would again like to thank the Association as the scholarship monies were a huge help to both of them their first year of college.

"Thank You Letter" from Nicholas Krivocheiko

Sunday, September 2, 2018


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

Get Involved in the new Community Garden


Hollywood Community Garden at Oak Lake Park


The City of Hollywood Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts is working to grow a Community Garden Program, starting with a community garden at Oak Lake Park, 3190 N 56th Avenue in Hollywood. Beginning growers, hobby growers and advanced gardeners are all welcome to participate. Please take a moment tell us about your interest in the proposed Community Garden at Oak Lake Park by taking the survey found here: http://www.hollywoodfl.org/garden

Should you have additional questions or concerns, please call the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts at 954.921.3404.


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.
