Save The Hollywood Sign
The world-famous HOLLYWOOD sign that has been used by TV and movie directors in more scene-setting shots than a film student could ever count was first erected in 1923 to promote real estate in the fledgling capital of celluloid.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Eighty-five years later, the sign and the hillside on which it sits are threatened by a real estate deal.
An investment group that owns 138 sage-covered acres above and to the left of the 45-foot-high, steel-and-concrete H put the land up for sale last month for $22 million.
When this land sells, mansions will no doubt be built there, spoiling the sign's uncluttered, postcard-perfect backdrop. The land may no longer be accessible to the hikers, and sightseers who often climb the hill for solitude and a panoramic view of the Los Angeles basin. Not to mention the tourists who travel from all over the world to snap a photo of the iconic sign which can be seen from miles away.
Help preserve the untouched land surrounding the sign by signing this petition. If we get 50,000 signatures our voice will be heard!!!
