    6TH ANNUAL MEETING: A TRADITION CONTINUES

    The 6th Annual General Meeting of Property and Business Owners took place on September 22, once again on the rooftop of Iron Mountain at 1025 N. Highland Ave. The rooftop has a spectacular view of the entire Media District.

    District 4 Councilman Tom LaBonge, and Hollywood Field Deputy Erik Sanjurjo, thank HMD stakeholders at the 6th Annual General Meeting of Property and business owners.

    This year the BID welcomed many new property and business owners to the meeting from the expansion area of the BID. Many city officials
    also attended the party, including Councilmember Tom LaBonge; Bill Kysella, Neighborhood Prosecutor; Erik Sanjurjo, Council District 4 Field Deputy; Stan Horowitz, Bureau of Street
    Lighting; Miranda Paster, City Clerk’s Office;
    and Peter Gutierrez, City Attorney.

    The Welcome Address was given by Devin Strecker, Operations Coordinator for the BID,
    who then introduced President Jack Fleming. Fleming reported on current projects in progress, including Security Cameras throughout the BID,
    a proposed parking structure, and several
    grants.

    LaBonge was the featured guest speaker, who thanked HMD stakeholders for improving the quality of life in the Media District. He also introduced his Field Deputy Erik Sanjurjo who has worked closely with the BID on several projects, including coordinating a meeting between the MTA and Caltrans in order to expedite the improvements on Highland and Santa Monica.

    Horowitz spoke about upcoming Pedestrian Lighting improvements, and Paster introduced herself as the new Supervisor for the Special Assessments Section of the City Clerk’s Office, the department which oversees BID funding.

    Special thanks to Iron Mountain, Hollywood Center Studios, Mole Richardson and Grub for making the event a success!
