In order to pursue a renovation of the Hollywood Theater, several procedural steps must be taken. One of those steps is establishing a City-sanctioned project area. The Department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) has put together some specifics about the project area, the goal of the project, and some other guidelines. Together, all that info is called the Hollywood Theatre Redevelopment Plan.
This plan only defines how the project can move forward in general terms. It does not cover exact details of how the Hollywood structure might be renovated, nor does it dictate what will become of the vacant lot across Johnson Street.
The redevelopment plan, if approved, will give the City the ability to buy the small house directly to the north of the theater (2819 Johnson). The Hollywood Task Force (HTF2) is convinced that, due to today’s fire codes and other considerations, without including 2819 Johnson, the theater building could never be a theater again.
Any comments on the proposed plan to create this official development project are welcome. Please deliver them to Sharrin Miller-Bassi, CPED Senior Project Coordinator, at 612-673-5019 or email@example.com. Comments must be received by October 28, 2008. The proposed plan is expected to be considered by the City Council on November 7th.
