SHERMAN OAKS—Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge has welcomed the City of Sherman Oaks to District 4 by beginning work on beautification projects around town.

Several reports indicate one of the first projects commissioned by LaBonge was a clean-up of the median in front of the La Reina Theatre shopping complex.  Dave Ahern, Chief of Field Operations for LaBonge was part of the team that worked all day on Friday, October 12 to remove dead plants and shrubs that were cluttering the median.

After completing the first phase of the process, the three-member team, which is the only one of its kind in the city, will help assist the local merchants association replant the median as part of the next stage in the project.

Then on Friday, October 19, street cleaning will take place in preparation for the city’s street fair on Sunday, October 21.  Maintenance will also be done at parks and high schools within CD4.

The Sherman Oaks Homeowner’s Association, along with other local groups is said to be involved in LaBonge’s beautification projects.

The 22nd Annual Sherman Oaks Street Fair will run from 10am to 6pm and is held annually on the third Sunday of every October.  More information about the fair can be found here.
