West Hollywood, CA - The fierce, grassroots fight to protect a neighborhood park from unwanted development by the
City of West Hollywood, has intensified as the group, Protect Plummer
Park, has retained the law firm of Luna & Glushon to seek a Temporary Restraining
Order, in an all out attempt to stop the City of West Hollywood from
immediately demolishing the Historic 1938 WPA structures, Great Hall/Long Hall.

The beloved, classic, Spanish Colonial Revival building, known officially as the Community Clubhouse, that
sits in Plummer Park, was listed on the California Register and on the
National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the
Interior, in 2013.

West Hollywood's original 41.3 million dollar, controversial plan to renovate Plummer Park
began in 1994 and was revisited in 2007. The plan was approved in 2010, and
was to be funded primarily by the State, with money from the the City's now defunct redevelopment agency. West Hollywood has been denied the funding twice by the CA Dept. of Finance as the State does not recognize the bonds as an obligation.

It is Protect Plummer Park's contention, that there were never any
alternatives presented to the public and though there has been a fervent outcry
for 2 1/2 years by 100s of residents and over 2,600 signatures on a petition
against the plan, the City, the Mayor and two Councilmen will most
likely vote on Tuesday night, Jan. 21st, 6:30pm, to go forward with immediate demolition of the
historic buildings to gain what the city calls "desired open space."

About 100 citizens plan to picket and to speak out at Tuesday's West Hollywood City Council
meeting to urge the Council to oppose the destruction of this important
piece of history and to include the public in a previously promised redesign more agreeable
to the community members. Other preservation groups; the LA Conservancy, Hollywood
Heritage, the West Hollywood Preservation Alliance and The Living New Deal
have joined Protect Plummer Park in efforts to save historic Great Hall/Long Hall and have urged their members to attend the meeting.

What: Public Demonstration to Stop Demolition
When: TUES, JAN 21, 2014 at 6:00pm- picketing
Council Meeting starts Promptly - 6:30pm
Where: West Hollywood City Council Chambers
625 N. San Vicente Blvd.
West Hollywood, CA 90069
Free Validated Parking in Structure
