Plans to improve the appearance of the streetscape along Hollywood Boulevard in Downtown Hollywood and to add security enhancements are moving forward. The City Commission in its role as the Board of the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency has approved a CRA capital improvement project to add poles for closed circuit security cameras, decorative lighting and new palm trees along Hollywood Boulevard.
The project calls for 51 new palm trees to replace 13 Copperpod trees located along Hollywood Boulevard. The mature, center canopy consisting of 27 live Oak and Tamarind trees located in the median along the boulevard will remain in place. Decorative, festoon lighting will be added to create a festive feeling.
As part of its outreach on the project, the Hollywood Community Redevelopment surveyed property owners in the area and worked with the Downtown Hollywood Business Association, both support the new landscape and the other capital improvements planned for the area.
