Last Chance To Sign Petition, Email Or Speak At Meeting
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An online petition was launched this week on the website www.Change.org to save the world famous Tower Records store on the Sunset Strip in Southern California: http://chn.ge/1e5yF92. This is the last chance to save the Tower Records store from the wrecking ball and preserve the most significant location and history of music on the Sunset Strip. While most music fans remember and know this store as the most famous record store in the world, many others remember it as the place to be seen and experience live music events during the nearly four decades on Sunset Boulevard.
Last spring the Historic Preservation Commission had two meetings where they agreed there was a significant social, cultural and music history there. But then they got hung up on mere aesthetics of red and yellow paint and additional advertising/marketing signage. The commissioners did recommend a plaque or perhaps a music square as recognition. Unfortunately they disagreed about full preservation of the location and structure. The majority of music fans and experts want full preservation of the location and structure. The original Tower Records store opened in November 1970 and began with no additional advertising/marketing signage at all. The original applicant for preservation is historian and author, Domenic Priore. Residents and fans still feel that commissioners last spring missed an important opportunity to preserve the location and site. But now there is a second chance as the Tower Records Store is up for reconsideration of an appeal to the city council. Local resident and community advocate, Jerome Cleary has launched a fundraising event on the crowd funding website: www.GoFundMe.com to raise funds to hire experts for the appeal: http://www.gofundme.com/2qxaeo.
The appeal will be heard on Monday, November 4th at 6:30pm and there are numerous ways to participate. Sign the online petition at: http://chn.ge/1e5yF92.
Snail mail: Stephanie Reich, 8300 Santa Monica Blvd. W. Hollywood, CA 90069.
Or call city council members at 323 848-6460 The appeal will be at the new West Hollywood Library, first floor city council chambers located at 625 North San Vicente Boulevard, West Hollywood, California 90069, between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard.
