Hindenburg Sign to be Taken Down
After many complaints and a petition on the subject, as well as a community forum held on the subject, the sign at Hindenburg Park, part of Crescenta Valley Park, will be taken down as a result of the decision by the L.A. County Commission on Human Relations. The Commission voted on Monday with nine members voting against the sign and one abstaining. It was suggested to create a new sign which details the history, both good and bad, of the park by bringing together members of the community and other stakeholders. Check CVWeekly next week for the full story.
