WeHo Preservation Alliance Meets to Discuss Great Hall-Long Hall

Plummer Park
Plummer Park’s Great Hall-Long Hall.

The West Hollywood Preservation Alliance (WHPA) will meet tonight to discuss plans to protect Plummer Park’s Great Hall-Long Hall.

The meeting comes after statements made by West Hollywood City Councilmember John Heilman, who said at the April 1 council meeting that the Works Progress Administration-era buildings should be “demolished forthwith.”

WHPA will meet 7:30 p.m. in Room 4 of the Community Center at Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. between Fuller and Vista.

Earlier this month, the City Council voted 4-1 in favor of not recommending Great Hall-Long Hall be recognized as historic landmarks.

The California Historical Resource Commission (HRC) meets on May 1 to consider an application to have Great Hall/Long Hall added to the National Register of Historic Places.¬†Even if the buildings are added to the National Register, the City Council can still demolish them citing the “overriding concern” to create open space.

@ Steve, the WHPA would love to set foot in Great Hall/Long Hall…they can’t get permission. It does not stink and has a beautiful courtyard. The meeting was held in Anaheim because the State of California chose the location. There were 32 other nominations from all over California. West Hollywood is NOT the center of the universe. Oh, and by the way, Steve…Great Hall Long Hall was unanimously granted Historic Designation! But then you may have read that!

I didn’t say they couldn’t get in – just that it was probably locked

Just ask the homeless people and hookers. I know for a fact that they can get in.

I rather think it’s because it is kept locked and who knows who has the keys.

Why isn’t the meeting being held in the beautiful Long Hall/ Great Hall? oh, because it stinks and is a gross building.
Lol….even the WHPA won’t step foot inside.

Hey Wayne – I always vote too – and I agree with you.

Preserve the buildings. Demolish John Heilman’s political career.
(And I’m part of the 16% of registered West Hollywood voters that voted in the last election…and I ALWAYS vote.)
