Rendering of Hollywood street at street level

In 2019, Councilmember O’Farrell established his HEART of Hollywood initiative with the priorities of History; Economy; Arts and Architecture; Renewal; and Tradition. With these principles in mind, the initiative promotes economic growth, world-class design, and a strong sense of place and community in the historic core of Hollywood, mostly centered on Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame.

The signature project of the HEART of Hollywood initiative is the Hollywood Walk of Fame Master Plan, which envisions Hollywood Boulevard as “a street for everyone,” particularly the residents and businesses that call this area home. The Master Plan aims to create an inclusive space with wider sidewalks, additional shade trees, a mobility lane, and pedestrian safety enhancements.
