This is an important and much needed project for so many reasons...the fact that jobs will be created that will benefit all of Los Angeles is only one aspect of why the green roof that will support the Hollywood Cap Park is something I support fully!

Hollywood Cap Park is the best idea since the Hollywood sign! I am president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association. A nieghborhood of about 1000 homes in the hills above Hollywood. We have a baby boom & kid explsion going on. These kids NEED a place to play. There is nothing in the neighborhood for them at all. This is a fabulous and MUCH NEEDED idea. We just GOTTA build it - and I KNOW "they will come!". Patti Negri, Hollywood Resident, Hollywood Buisness Owner.

Hollywood Cap Park - an awesome, visionary idea whose time has come here in Los Angeles !!

Cannot recommend this enough, and am so excited to see it come to reality in the years to come.

Los Angeles desperately needs more parks, but yet - we have no space to do this. This is not
only the best idea, but the only idea that is feasible, practical, and will make this great city - even greater.

Friends of the Hollywood Cap Park is a wonderful organization dedicated to the ambitious project of bringing a true "Central Park" to downtown Hollywood. It is aimed at creating much-needed open space in a park-poor, economically-disadvantaged community and in the process promises to serve local families. It is a wonderful mission that will benefit residents and businesses alike.

40,000 children live within one mile of the proposed 44 acre Hollywood Freeway Cap Park. This park will not only give these children a safe place to play, but benefit Hollywood as a whole through increased tourism and economic stimulus for investment in the surrounding areas. This park will serve as a model for all communities in Los Angeles and the nation.

I do not see any changes needed at this time as the Friends of Hollywood Cap Park create this much needed park.

I would be a prouder Angelino to have a cap park over one of the busiest freeways in California. It's an innovative, aesthetically-appealing solution to too much concrete and too few open gathering places in Los Angeles.

I've personally witnessed the cap park project grow from an idea into trips to Washington DC to fundraising galas and park design sketches.

If I was able to make a change to this organization, it would be to grant them additional funding to complete their work!

The reality is that this part of Hollywood has less than 3% of the City Standard for neighborhood parkland of 4 acres/1000 residents. The surrounding neighborhoods are predominantly poor and minority and are completely built out. These air rights already belong to the people of California. I understand the park will clean the air from the two tunnels which will improve the health of the local residents and visitors.

This is a well organized, hard working effective group. As an Architect and Landscape Architect, as a Board Member of the local Neighborhood Council, and as a nearby resident, I strongly support the construction of this street level mile long park over this already depressed section of the Hollywood Freeway.

Identify a first phase of the entire park and get it built.

It's a fantastic organization. Topping off the freeway with a park in an area that is desolate of green space is brilliant. It combines stuff for kids and exercisers with an arts presence and just the facility to sit and "take the air" for us geezers. It will be absolutely perfect for this community which needs it desperately.

I worked on helping raise money for it and we actually did!

I remember hearing about the dream of a park over the 101 freeway in Hollywood at a Hollywood Chamber meeting years ago. To see what great progress has been made is nothing short of inspiring. The Hollywood Cap Park will offer true green space in a urban landscape and reconnect two halves of one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world!

The idea of having a park being built on top of the 101 freeway is just amazing. A place where kids can come and play and families can spend time with each other just sounds like a great idea.

It will allow a community to come together, new jobs will be formed and it will be a great
addition to what Hollywood stands for.
