Hollywood 2020 and Neighborhood Master Plans

 

What are your neighborhood priorities?

The City of Hollywood is asking its residents for input to the master plan.

 

Help Identify Neighborhood Priorities Vibrant neighborhoods are essential to the overall sustainability of the City of Hollywood. The process of creating and updating Neighborhood Master Plans can provide a neighborhood with clear vision of community needs and priorities. Identification of neighborhood priorities by community stakeholders is critical to creating a sustainable and prosperous city as these priorities become the building blocks for the Neighborhood Master Plan. Residents and other community stakeholders can help identify these priorities by taking the following survey:


The responses will be compiled and forwarded to the appropriate association representatives. This is your chance to help the City of Hollywood make important updates to the City's master plan.

The current owner of the medical office building at 3800 Johnson Street has procured 3 adjacent residential lots to the west of the 3800 Johnson Street property. These are 3802, 3810 and 3814 Johnson Street. These lots are being converted into a surface parking lot to serve the medical office building at 3800 Johnson Street. The parking lot will meet all City requirements, in terms of screening and landscaping. We are continuing the 6 ft high masonry stucco wall behind the property and it will also be added to the west property line to act as a buffer between the parking lot and existing residential lot next door. We are also adding a 4 ft high masonry stucco wall along Johnson Street, again to screen the parking lot. All walls will have hedges and trees in front of them so as to soften the look of the wall and to meet the City’s requirements.

As you may know, 3800 Johnson Street currently has most of its parking at grade under the building. We will be infilling some of that parking at the east side to create a building addition. This addition will consist of infilling the existing arches of the parking lot and it will be built within the existing building footprint. I have attached 2 images, one is of the existing street view of the building from Johnson Street, the other shows what it would look like with the new addition/infill. As you can see, we are keeping with the same construction materials and color scheme for the new infill so that it blends in seamlessly with the existing building.
