Gateway to Silver Lake 2000 
(GSL 2000)

Plans "Before" Photos of the Site Work in Progress
The Gateway to Silver Lake 2000 project, or GSL 2000 as we lovingly call it, is a plan to rehabilitate the landscaping and add art work to the long-neglected and abused intersection of the Hollywood Freeway and Silver Lake boulevard from London St. to the north and Temple St. to the south. This is one of several entrances or "gateways" into our Silver Lake community. GSL 2000 was formed by members of the Silver Lake Improvement Association (SLIA), Silver Lake Residents Association (SLRA), and the Silver Lake Chamber of Commerce. 

If you want more information or would like to make a $ donation or help with the project, call the GSL-2000 Hotline at (323)228-9599.

  • July, 2001--

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the various Silver Lake  organizations named in the wrongful death lawsuit have agreed to dismiss the lawsuit altogether given that the defendants do not ask for legal fees.  That is GREAT NEWS!
