Thank you for joining us for the 2021 State of Hollywood!
Never before has Hollywood experienced what we are going through now: a country divided and a community trying to imagine a future beyond the pandemic. Our elected officials have their work cut out for them as they lead us through the storm and on to brighter days.
On February 11, 2021, Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell spoke about the time’s most pressing issues and provided updates on the work he is doing to lead Hollywood and the City through COVID-19. The Address was followed by an engaging Q&A session moderated by Dwayne A. Gathers, President, Gathers Strategies and Hollywood Chamber Board Chair, along with Samantha Lynn, General Manager of The Rise Hollywood.
We were also joined by Kristopher Larson, President and CEO of The Hollywood Partnership whose presentation The State of the Hollywood Market and the Known Economic Impacts of the Pandemic included data associated with real estate developments, pedestrian vibrancy, mobility, and other indicators that informed us on where we are relative to one year ago.
