Be A Part of The Solution: 'Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful' Programs Unite The Community

July 7, 2022

The "Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful" movement started in 2015 as a way to educate and inform property owners to make Hollywood a better place to live, work and play. The continued community effort work to unite residents to promote the enhancement of private properties through education, outreach, and programs that focus on code compliance and city beautification in an effort to increase property values and retain/attract businesses. There are many programs and volunteer opportunities that you can be a part of to make a difference within the City.
