Myself, along with many of the residents in Beachwood Canyon are very displeased with the closing of the gate to the trailhead at the top of Beachwood Drive that leads to the Hollywood Sign. I understand that this was a court ruling, however based on that court ruling it appears as if the city did not put up any kind of fight to keep the gate open as the court did not initially require the gate to be closed (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/mar/23/hollywood-sign-lawsuit-california-residents-hiking). I understand that Councilmember Ryu supports access to the Hollywood Sign. If that is the case, then I would like to request that Councilmember Ryu respond to feedback from the residents upset by this decision and tell us what, if anything, he and his office are doing to restore access. Further, there was an article in The Hollywood Reporter that came out yesterday (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/hollywood-sign-access-closed-neighbors-celebrate-995255) that claims the residents who wanted to shut down access on Beachwood are looking to shut down ALL access to the Hollywood Sign west of Bronson. When is this going to end? Enough is enough and I'm urging your office to do something about this. Thank you.
