The following is a press release from the City of West Hollywood.
The City's street tree trimming contractor, West Coast Arborists, is scheduled to begin the City’s Annual Grid Pruning process next week. Trimming activities will commence with the trees along Sunset Blvd beginning on September 4. Each day, trimming will start at 8:00 am, and will be finished by 3:00 pm. The westbound lanes of Sunset Blvd. will not be affected until after 10:00 am in order to minimize the disruption to morning traffic.
In an effort to let the business community and daily commuters know of, and plan for the tree trimming activities:
- "No parking" signs will be placed a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the work. The signs will reflect the scheduled trimming activities for each day and will be broken down into two time segments, before noon and after noon. The "No parking" signs will reflect these times, however parking spaces will be re-opened as soon as possible after work is completed.
- Door hangers will be placed one week in advance of tree trimming activities.
- Electronic message boards will be placed at strategic locations several days before trimming, and during trimming activities to allow commuters the option of changing their route.
- Notification of trimming activities to be posted on website and cable.
The City’s Maintenance Superintendent, Kevin Trudeau, will be coordinating the work and can provide you with any additional information that you may need. He can be reached at 323-848-6339.
