Gracewood Sidewalk Program

The City of Hollywood is applying for a grant to fill in missing sidewalk sections in the Gracewood neighborhood surrounding West Hollywood Elementary School and McArthur High School.  The primary purpose of this project is to improve pedestrian safety by providing a safe network of interconnected sidewalks that will allow people of all ages and abilities to travel to and from the many schools and retail locations in the area. 

The grant process, in part, requires “community support” for the project. The City is offering a number of online options where you can lend your support for the project:
