LOS FELIZ STEPS RETURNED TO GLORY

The historic Los Feliz Steps were rededicated Thursday, a community project of the Greater Griffith Park Neighborhood Council and CD4. The dramatic restoration of the facade of the stairway, comprised of four sets of stairs, re-cast urns and a decorative basin, was underwritten by Los Feliz residents and a City of Los Angeles Community Beautification Grant wanting to return the local landmark "to its historical cultural dignity and original appearance." GGPNC volunteers cleared debris, oversaw reproduction work and re-landscaped while the Board of Public Works restored the stairway and the sidewalk and gave the stairs its protective coating. The stairs are a city historical landmark.

Yes, another restoration!

Good to hear after the recent news about the restoration of the
Hollywood Bowl fountain. Its these little "gems" that can make
a difference in changing people's attitude towards saving our
history.

A group of neighbors is meeting this Sunday September 3, 2006 to help clear the Los Feliz steps, from Cromwell to Bonvue, of leaves and overhanging branches.

Just show up, we'll be there, Cheers!
