Let him be renewed Hollywood Walk of Fame, so traditional and so known throughout the world, now it's possible. The councilor Mitch O'Farrell happened this thursday a proposal to make an important remodeling in this key area for the tourism and for the local population of The Angels.

The goal of the initiative, if approved, is to convert the Hollywood boulevard, the stretch of the stars between the La Brea Avenue and the vine street, in one more walk accessible to pedestrians.

"The boulevard has not reached its potential even by far," O'Farrell told the newspaper Los Angeles Times. "We are very optimistic that we can see a real change in this historic boulevard in a few years."

Specifically, the proposal consists of leave only one lane in each direction for cars, in addition to the central lane. Instead, the sidewalks for walkers will be expanded, and bike paths will be included that will share space with scooters.

The proposal could be controversial, since parking options in the area will be reduced; however, the councilor stated that a strategic plan should be made and the necessary feedback will be received before making any changes.

Among the possible benefits that the measure would bring, it is anticipated that wide sidewalks would attract more tourists, for example, coming from cities where pedestrian crossings are common. In addition, small scenarios could be added for street performers, playgrounds for children and pets, kiosks for street vendors and perhaps terraces for restaurants in the area.
