We are thankful that our Councilman Paul Krekorian drafted a city council motion to install a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB) on Magnolia. These are flashing lights that The Department of Transportation is piloting throughout the city to accompany cross walk signage an ultimately increase safety. According to Councilman Krekorian’s motion, this intersection is key to enhancing the walkability of the NoHo Arts District.
