Rather than simply serving as a cursory presentation of the Hollywood Community Plan, the roundtable will serve as an opportunity for architects, urban planners, community activists and civic leaders to engage in an open discussion about how we can all work together to contribute to the civic discourse and reach a greater consensus about our social, environmental and aesthetic values that will help shape the future of our city.
