A Park Betrayed .......... for future considerations of the "University of Scandalous Conduct"
Additional news regarding Hazard Park. Last week we posted how USC Medical Complex was requesting that our city allow for an amendment that would allow them to extend Norfolk street through to Soto street meaning that it would take a portio
n of Hazard Park and demolish the handball courts in the process. I also announced that there would be a public meeting on Wednesday Dec. 5th at 6:30 at Hazard Gymnasium. That still holds true and would encourage anyone who is opposed to this inconsiderate plan to take portions of our community park to attend Wednesday's meeting. I've just learned that the Planning and Land Use Management (Plum) Committee will be considering permits and follow-ups on Tuesday in City Hall. So please call both Councilmen Jose Huizar (CD14) (213 473-7013) and Ed Reyes (CD 1) (213 473-7001) Lincoln Heights and voice your opposition against this extension of Norfolk Street. In 1966 our city tried to give this park away to the Veteran's Administration for some property in Westwood but our community fought back and made then Mayor Sam Yorty and the city council repeal that plan. We need to do the same today. Much thanks, Ray
