Conservation group fundraising to prevent construction of luxury homes


 

The iconic white letters that sit atop Los Angeles’s Hollywood Hills have been covered up by protesters. The Hollywood sign, which is made up of nine 15-metre high letters, has been eclipsed by panels that read “Save the Peak” in a conservation group’s bid to stop a housing development. The San Francisco-based Trust for Public Land is trying to raise $12.5 million by April 14 the Cahuenga Peak property, which is home to expansive hiking trails. Otherwise, the Chicago-based owners plan to turn to the property into luxury homes. The protest, however, is legal: the group was given permission to cover the letters until next Tuesday for fundraising purposes.
