When: Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 from 1:00pm-4:00pm

Where: Plummer Park, West Lawn

The destruction of heritage trees, the demolition of historic buildings and the exorbitant price tag during this country's worst economic crisis is raising questions and concerns.

* $41 Million renovation includes $10 Million underground parking structure,
to net 69 extra spaces

* Demolition of Great Hall/Long Hall, the only two WPA structures in the city and decimation of noted architect, Henry L. Gogerty's Fiesta Hall.

*Destruction of dozens of mature trees, some of which are over 125 years old.

*Closure of park for two years due to heavy construction

Protesters seek to have West Hollywood City Council Stop the current plan:

*Omit the underground parking structure to save trees and historic buildings

*Incorporate the restoration of the historic WPA buildings and maintain architectural integrity of Fiesta Hall

*Per the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation, have structures registered as historic landmarks and save, register and maintain heritage trees as historic trees.

Invited guests include: Local, state, and federal officials, regulatory agencies, environmentalists and celebrity supporters.
