Dear Councilmember Pacheco,
On Tuesday's City Council meeting of this week, a motion to include
the MONTEREY TRAILER PARK (located in the Hermon community), on the
city's list of Historic-Cultural Monuments was continued for one
week, at your request. We understand from residents of the park that
the new owner may have wanted more information on this matter.
Please know that the Hermon Neighborhood Association supports the
designation, and even plans to factor in this one-of-a-kind location
prominently in our centennial celebration next year - what could be
more fitting in Los Angeles than such a "monument" to automotive
If you've been able to visit the location at any time, you would know
that the term "park" is very appropriate. Believed to have once been
a stagecoach stop, the park's 150-year-old trees and quiet,
attractive layout gives the resident (many of them long-
time "Hermonites") a peaceful oasis just a few hundred feet from the
110 Freeway and busy Monterey Road.
The Hermon Neighborhood Association would be happy to work with the
Park's new owner and several dozen residents in any way that might
ease the process of honoring and preserving this portion of our 99-
year-old community's unique history.
When this issue is placed back on the Council agenda on November 5,
we strongly urge you to support the Monterey Trailer Park's historic-
Thanks to you and your staff for your continued support of our goal
of making the Hermon community of Los Angeles a better-known and
attractive place to live and work in our great city.
