The Hollywood Sign Trust, the 501(c)3 nonprofit trust responsible for maintaining the Sign and educating the world about its historical and cultural importance, has completed the first stage of work to restore the Hollywood Sign to the pristine condition achieved during its 1978 rebuild. The project, initiated in conjunction with the Trust’s extensive preparations for the Sign’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2023, included clearing eroded soil accumulation and removing construction debris and low scrub grasses and bushes within five feet of the Sign’s base.
Planning for the cleanup project was prompted after the Hollywood Sign Trust conducted the first structural survey of the Sign since it was rebuilt in 1978. The Trust subsequently issued an RFP to vendors familiar with park procedures and Evergreen Environment, Inc. was selected to perform the necessary work in September of 2021. The project began on October 15 and was completed in mid-November.
