The city is encouraging members of the community to attend, or send comments to be read at the meeting to Dana Beesen at by November 23. For additional information residents can call (310) 285-6820.

Due to complaints by park visitors of an increased use of space by personal trainers and their clients, the city of Beverly Hills is contemplating enforcement of issuance of personal training permits for individuals using select public parks for business. Beverly Hills is looking to work with personal trainers and the community to meet their needs regarding this issue.

Although the use of public parks for individual or group instruction is not allowed without a permit, there has been minimal enforcement of the rules and regulations.
